MIY: Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning in jar with lid

Have you ever ran out of something, went to the store to pick it up and it not be there?


My family likes a very specific brand of taco seasoning. So when I made the trip (on three different shopping weeks) to get more I only found an empty shelf. Shaking my head, I walked away. Feeling not so happy that other’s had beat me to the coveted taco seasoning I decided to take matters into my own hands. I figured I could compare the ingredients on the jar and make this little guy myself. After a short search, there are thousands upon thousands of taco seasoning recipes out there, I found one that matched most of the ingredients on the jar. The below recipe I tweeked a bit and came up with a goodie.

This has allowed me to take out all the yuck as well as control salt. I’ve been making this taco seasoning now for over a year and have had no complaints. Serving it not only to my family, but friends and coworkers. This is a keeper!
