No need to worry about added MSG or preservatives! There’s nothing but spices in this DIY Taco Seasoning!
If your family likes Mexican food as much as we do you’re definitely going to want to have a big batch of this made up and stored in your pantry. Once you start making your own Taco Seasoning you’re never going back to your normal packaged brand!
We have Mexican night quite often in our home. Between my two kids and Paul’s three it can be a challenge at times to please everyone. I know when I make my Chicken Quesadillas though everyone is going to make it to the dinner table on time! In the past I’ve used packaged Taco Seasoning but after making this DIY version… in literally 3 minutes…. I’m never going back.
The best part about making your own seasoning is the fact that you can control what goes in it. If you like it spicy kick it up a notch by adding extra cayenne. If your watching your sodium intake add less salt. You don’t need to worry about artificial ingredients because you know exactly what went in it!
