My friend Karen was kind enough to give me her Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe and it’s very easy to make. Check out our Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe below!
Homemade Taco Seasoning:
In my home we eat tacos often. We love the traditional Mexican meals, and add Tex-Mex favorites, but I also put my own spin on a lot of recipes.
Making My Own Seasonings:
One of my favorite reasons for making my own Homemade Taco Seasoning is that I have switched over to all organic non-GMO spices. With using my own mixes, I don’t have to worry about what is in those store bought mixes that I used to buy.
Plus with a pouch, I only have what’s in the pouch! If I need more, I’m out of luck. With Karen’s recipe she kindly shared with me, I made own Homemade Taco Seasoning and put it in a Ball Mason Jar to keep it fresh. I was thinking– this would also make for a great gift idea for a housewarming gift, or a new mom.
Making your own seasonings in bulk also allows me to see how much I have left and I can use as little or as much as I need. Now and then I find out my son or daughters are coming over last minute and I need to stretch the recipe that I am making for dinner.
