I thought today I would share my super easy recipe for DIY Taco Seasoning Recipe. I love making my own for several reasons, one of which is that it is so much better for you that buying those store bought packets. Have you ever looked at the ingredient list on the back of those packets? Yikes! And no thank you! I also love that making my own DIY Taco Seasoning is so much more economical than buying it. I can make so much for so little and when you have a bigger sized family like mine and they all just happen to love tacos, well, you go through a lot of taco seasoning! 🙂 (affiliate links present)
I started making my own taco 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. And in case you are making my Crockpot Chicken Taco Soup Recipe or my Crockpot Shredded Beef Tacos Recipe and you don’t have a packet of taco seasoning on hand 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 this may come in pretty handy!
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!
