I don’t know about you but I would much rather make my seasoning blends than buy those in the packets. They turn out so much better and you can control the amount of salt and heat. Maybe I just have a few control issues but taking just a few extra minutes to mix up a seasoning blend can really bring a dish to a new level. Take this Homemade Taco Seasoning for example.
This Homemade Taco Seasoning recipe only takes a couple minutes to put together and costs less than buying pre-packaged taco seasoning. It also has less salt and no artificial additives or preservatives. You can store it in a spice container and it will stay fresh for up to 6 months. You will find that this Homemade Taco Seasoning will become a popular staple in your spice cabinet.
