Making your own taco seasoning may seem like a hassle, why not just purchase a package at the grocery store…right? You can make your own with the spices you already have in your pantry and save a buck or two at the grocery store.
I know, you’re thinking, just a dollar… right? Yeah, just a dollar, every time you make one of your favorite recipes, and that can eventually add up to something you can purchase from your wish list!
Making your own taco seasoning is a great way to reduce the sodium content, artificial flavoring, and you can adjust the flavors and “heat” to your liking. You can also double or triple the recipe to make a larger batch. Store the seasoning in an air tight container in your pantry, and have available for all your favorite recipes. Try the taco seasoning in Mexican dishes, dips, soups, chili, salad dressings and even rub on chicken, pork, and beef before adding to the grill.
