When you make your seasonings blends at home, you can ensure the ingredients are fresh! Try this homemade taco seasoning for your next taco night.
I’ve always felt that the taco seasoning packets you can purchase at the grocery store were just a tad bit too salty. Then one day I found a recipe to make it myself, and I opted to reduce the salt. I’ve never looked back; it’s been years since I have used the packaged stuff! This recipe is what I use for my stock.
