Taco Seasoning Recipe



It seems like we have Tacos in this house at least once a week. We have no Taco Bell Restaurants close by, so we always make our own. There are so many brands of premade Taco Seasonings in the store; I don’t think I could count them all, and most of them are pretty good. This homemade Taco seasoning recipe is very good, it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, and you can make up a large amount ahead of time to have on hand for anytime you need it.
