Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning

Super Easy Taco Seasoning You Can Use in Lots of Recipes

I don’t know about you, but I like to save money by making my own homemade food like my Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning.  In this fast paced world we live in, it’s so easy to just live off of processed food. I am guilty of this from time to time myself. A few years ago, I decided to try to make some of my own seasonings. I was so surprised by how easy it is and how much more flavorful our food is!

Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning

My family absolutely loves any food that is mexican. We could live off of tacos and be completely content. Okay, I would still need chocolate to survive, but we could almost survive off of tacos alone! The best part of most of the mexican dishes I make is that they are inexpensive and I can use my own Homemade Taco Seasoning to save even more money. Most of the ingredients you probably already have in your cabinet, so this is an inexpensive recipe as well!

These seasoning is great because it doesn’t have all the sodium and you know exactly what goes in it. You can add it to tacos, burritos, enchiladas or any other mexican dish you can think of. It is also good if you add it to some ranch dressing for a little kick!  I would also recommend my sisters Easy Beef Enchilada Recipe!  Just add 2 heaping tablespoons and 1 cup of water to the browned hamburger and simmer for 5 minutes.

It’s also nice to decorate your kitchen with homemade spices and seasonings. I love the look of mason jars filled with different seasonings. It just adds that special good feeling of being in an inviting home to gather for meals. Now it’s time for you to make your own!!
