Homemade Taco Seasoning - It's a Keeper

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!
