Taco Seasoning

Homemade Taco Seasoning

There is something really satisfying about making your own seasoning mix.  You can make it in bulk, you know exactly what’s in it and you can customize it to your satisfaction.  Of all the spices I use, this mix is my favorite.  I adore taco night when I use this seasoning.  It’s so easy to make and store that you should give it a try.  I suggest starting with half the recipe to determine where you need to make adjustments for your taste buds.  Enjoy!
