Homemade Taco Seasoning

Homemade Taco Seasoning

If my son were to be stuck on a deserted island and could only bring one food with him, it would probably be a toss between pasta and tacos.

So, we eat a lot of tacos, and I was buying plenty of those little taco seasoning packets.

Yes, I don’t mind keeping a company in business, but if I can make my own seasoning at home without any additives or preservatives, you can bet I’m going to go for it.

After searching the web I found this recipe at AllRecipes.com and adapted it after reading various reviews and came up with a good result that made the family happy.
