I thought today I would share an easy recipe for DIY Taco Seasoning. In case you are making a few of these recipes here and here and you don't have a packet of taco seasoning handy or you just plain don't like all the extra additives (can we say MSG, what the hey peeps?) that many of the store bought brands include.
I started making my own seasoning last year and can I just tell you how much I LOVE IT!! It is ridiculously easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients you need right in that awesome kitchen of yours too.
This stuff tastes just like the store-bought variety minus all the crud...me likey and I hope you likey too! After you make this you will start thinking that the packet o' seasonings you find in the Mexican food aisle are the poor man's version of Taco seasoning....just sayin'...it's that good!
