How to Make Homemade Taco Seasoning
We finally ditched store-bought seasoning packets for this quick, homemade taco seasoning! It’s a great way to save money and control the ingredients, with no additives or excess sodium.
This recipe yields about 3 Tbsp. (or one store bought package). I love making a larger batch (tripling or quadrupling the recipe) and storing it in a small mason jar to have ready when needed. If you like a kick, try adding cayenne pepper and/or red pepper flakes. Ground chipotle is also a great twist – I love the smokiness!
A couple of my favorite recipes to use this seasoning is these super easy & satisfying Portobello Fajitas (pictured below) and Black Bean Lentil Taco Soup. I’d love to hear how you guys use it too!
