Taco seasoning is something I always make homemade. The spices to make the mix are fairly common so I usually already have all of them, it only takes just a few seconds to throw together, and the flavor is always spot on. I’ve been using this taco seasoning recipe for years and I always get compliments on it and am never disappointed. Plus, taco seasoning packets are expensive and many have added gluten, additives, and food coloring – YUCK!
I like to make large batches of it to keep in my pantry so taco night extra easy and for recipes I come across that call for a packet of taco seasoning. Easy and delicious, my kind of recipe!!!
*Goes great with Grain Free Tortillas or Cassava Flour Tortillas (which are paleo, egg, and nut free)
