It’s easier than you might think to make your own seasoning blends. This homemade Easy Taco Seasoning will replace the packet from the store with the preservatives in it.
Easy Taco Seasoning
Have you ever been in the middle of making a recipe that calls for taco seasoning, and you realize that you don’t have one of those little packets? Me too. So what I used to do was just toss some spices into the pot and hoped it would come out okay. It usually did, but it would have been easier and faster to have a taco seasoning blend already on hand.
Easy Taco Seasoning only takes a few minutes to mix up, so it’s very doable to make it at the last minute.
This Easy Taco Seasoning recipe makes about a half a cup, so you will have plenty on hand. You’ll get about 3 ‘packets worth’ from this recipe. I like to make a double batch as I use taco seasoning a lot.
