Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe, because you can’t beat homemade tacos. Better than store-bought, never use a packet again!
Our family favorite homemade taco seasoning for ground beef, chicken, pork, and even beans! Great for meat or meatless meals!
Where we live there are few good Mexican restaurants. Our family loves tacos and Mexican food so we’re always trying a new Mexican Restaurant we see. We finally have a goodie, I’m so used to having a hard time finding authentic Mexican food near me. However, I do prefer to make food at home, just going out for a treat. We used to do Taco Tuesdays and now we just have tacos whenever we want, because there’s no wrong day for tacos, nachos or anything with cheese and spices, am I right?
So, anyway, back to my Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe. I don’t use this for just tacos. I like to use it for chicken, pork, chickpeas, meatless meals and anything that I just want that delicious taco flavor to merry with. I’ve even been known to sprinkle it on fries, mac and cheese, whatever I want! 😉
There are so many ways to use our Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe and you won’t miss opening a packet ever again. I double this recipe and use it pretty quickly. I showed a small jar to show you our recipe, but I make this in a MUCH larger batch. You could definitely multiply this recipe. The salt in this recipe is definitely to taste. I find that salt really enhances the total flavor of everything, but keep in mind when you use salt that other ingredients in the recipe (like a taco shell or tortillas) also have salt.
