Note: This recipe has been updated with much better pictures and quantities for making a whole jar of seasoning as opposed to just a couple of tbsps. You can view the new recipe here: Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe.
We love tacos.
Beef tacos, chicken tacos, steak tacos, you name it.
But as much as it makes tacos taste great, I loathe buying pre-packaged taco seasoning mix. First of all there are ingredients in there I don’t recognize. Second, the ingredients I do recognize I have sitting right in my cabinet.
So I have spent the summer trying different taco seasoning recipes that I found on the web, and finally, FINALLY I found one that will forever be “our” taco seasoning recipe.
It was SO GOOD in both the beef tacos and chicken tacos I made last night.
