Nacho Night and The Best Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix! (Sounds like a band name, doesn’t it?!)

Who doesn’t like nachos?! We have nacho night at our house at least once a month (our junk food night), my husband loves it! As I’ve said before, I have a few nacho-type “cheese” recipes that I rotate for different types of food – nachos, bean dip, broccoli “cheese” potatoes,  enchiladas, tacos, etc.

I used this potato-based vegan Fake-Out Cheese recipe for this batch of nachos, along with my husband’s favorite fake meat crumbles (Quorn brand – mushroom protein crumbles – orange bag, freezer section at Sprouts), black beans, black olives, homemade guacamole (2 avocados and a packet of “Spicy Great Guacamole” – makes the best guac! Produce section, black packet), fresh chopped tomatoes, Tofutti brand “Better than Sour Cream” sour cream (buy at Sprouts) and salsa/hot sauce.

Yum... Nachos!

I’ve been making this Taco Seasoning Mix recipe for a couple of years now, I haven’t used store-bought taco seasoning since I found it. It’s easy to make and it tastes great! I mix this with the Quorn brand fake meat crumbles before I add them to the nachos, I dissolve 1 Tbsp cornstarch in 2 Tbsp of water then add it in at the end to thicken the sauce.
  • 2 tablespoons mild chile powder (for the best flavor do not reduce this amount) – I use chipotle or adobo chile powder
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 -3 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt (or use 1/2 teaspoon white salt)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne (optional or to taste)


  1. Combine all ingredients (double or triple if desired) .
  2. Store tightly sealed in a small glass jar until ready to use.
