My family loves Mexican-inspired flavors. This Homemade Taco Seasoning is easy to make and packs a lot of flavor.
Lately, I’ve been all about making my own seasoning blends. I like that I can control what goes into each blend. I know that the spices and herbs are fresh and I can control how much salt (if any) is used.
One of the best things about making your own seasoning blends is that it’s a lot less expensive than store-bought blends.
This Homemade Taco Seasoning is perfect for recipes like:
- Baked Chicken Fajitas
- Mexican Fiesta Chicken
- Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
Or you can use it in place of the taco seasoning packets you get at the grocery store. Simply add 2-3 tablespoons of the homemade seasoning blend and 2/3 cups of water to one pound of browned ground beef and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
I also add a tablespoon or so to bottled ranch salad dressing to make a Tex-Mex inspired salad.
This seasoning is so versatile. The possibilities are endless!
