Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe

Taco Seasoning Mix

Why buy prepackaged mixes with mystery ingredients when you can make it yourself? When I realized how many things were in those packages of seasoning mix at the grocery store, I set out on a mission to make my own. All it took was one try and I have never used another taco seasoning mix packet again.

The best part of making it yourself? You can control the ingredients completely. Need less salt in your diet? Done. Want more heat? Done.
