If you haven’t started making your own taco seasoning yet, the time is now! It’s easy, economical, and, since you are in control of the ingredients, you get to avoid the excessive salt, MSG, preservatives, and other unsavory additives often found in store bought taco seasoning.
I go through a lot of taco seasoning in my kitchen, folks. So for me, the other advantage of throwing together my own mix is that I can make it in bulk. This recipe makes the equivalent of about eight of those little packets from the grocery store. Stored in an airtight jar, it will last a long time, but if you don’t use taco seasoning all that often, you might want to cut the recipe in half. I use this mix so frequently that I usually double the recipe. My family loves our Tex-Mex, so whether I’m whipping up beef or chicken tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chalupas, or some version of a Mexican casserole, having a big jar of homemade taco seasoning at my fingertips makes getting dinner on the table that much quicker and healthier.
So go forth and make taco seasoning! It’s an effortless, homemade pantry staple that will make you wonder why you ever bought the packaged stuff.
