Taco Seasoning Mix

Make your own taco seasoning mix with simple pantry spices. Done in minutes and so much more flavorful than the store-bought packets.

You will never buy another package of taco seasoning again.  This is super cheap to make and tastes fresher than any store bought packet.  Another perk to this seasoning is that there isn’t anything you can’t pronounce or nasty stuff like MSG or extra sodium.

Sprinkle a few tablespoons on ground beef or turkey (while cooking) for easy weeknight tacos or nachos. 

Double or triple the recipe so that you have extra on hand when you need to throw something together quickly.  Just be sure to store it in an airtight container.

Taco Seasoning Mix

Skip the store and make your own taco seasoning mix with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. So much more flavor and none of the bad stuff.
