Today I thought I would share this easy taco seasoning recipe. I don’t remember the last time I used a packet of store-bought taco seasoning. What I do know, is that the store-bought stuff is filled with useless additives like sugar, cornstarch, and a whole bunch of other stuff I can’t even pronounce.
This homemade seasoning tastes so much better, it’s healthier, and it’s cheaper! Most of us already have the ingredients in our pantry just sitting there waiting to be used.
The great thing about making your own spice mix, is that you can adjust the ingredients to your taste. I prefer a spicy taco seasoning, so I like to go heavy with the hot chilli powder and pepper flakes, but you can adjust the spiciness to your taste or leave it out altogether. If you’re on a low-sodium diet, you can leave out the salt.
I like to store my homemade spices in mini spice jars. They can last up to a year, depending on the freshness of your ingredients (check the expiry dates). When you’re ready to use it, add about 2 tablespoons of seasoning per 1 pound of meat.
I love these cute little spice jars on Amazon. Click the link to check them out!
