It took me a whole month to get these Taco Pickles photographed because my husband loves them. Every time I went to grab the jar to take photos, I would find it half empty.
I ended up making three jars at one time and hiding the pickle jar I planned to photograph in the back of the refrigerator.
My husband fell madly deeply in love with these the first time I made them and now asks for them almost weekly.
If you know any pickle-lovers these would make a fantastic DIY holiday gift or surprise.
We toss them on salads, on a sandwich, or eat them on their own. We haven't tried them in tacos, but they taste fantastic, diced into a quesadilla.
They have a great bite of flavor and kick of spice depending on the taco seasoning you use.

This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make Taco Pickles! Specific measurements and step by step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- Dill Pickles
- Taco Seasoning
Taco Seasoning - We use original Taco Seasoning Mix but you can easily use Taco Bell Taco Seasoning, cheesy taco, gluten free taco seasoning, or hot and spicy taco seasoning for a zestier flavor. You can use homemade taco seasoning too.
Gluten Free Taco Seasoning is available from McCormick, Siete, and a few other brands.
Pickles - We like to use kosher dill pickle spears for this recipe. It can also be made with pickle chips. Full dill pickles may not absorb the flavor through the pickle skin so we tend to not use them.
There is no equipment needed to make this viral recipe!
How to make Taco Pickles
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Gather the ingredients. Pour off a bit of pickle juice from the jar so the taco seasoning fits.
Step 2 - Pour taco seasoning into the jar of pickles. Make sure you don't overflow the liquid from the jar.
The seasoning will settle into the jar after a minute or so. If not you can stir it in gently.
Step 3 - Seal the pickle jar and give it a big shake to incorporate all the seasonings with the pickle juice!
Step 4 - Let taco pickles sit for at least 24 hours in the fridge to absorb all of the epic taco seasoning flavor.
The longer the pickles sit in the fridge the more flavor they will have.
The pickles need to be stored in the refrigerator.
We suggest shaking the jar before enjoying the pickles each time. This helps keep the seasoning well distributed.
