Taco Seasoning

I love tacos. But I dislike the store-bought seasoning – mainly because I find it WAY too salty! And because of all of the salt, I could never actually taste the seasonings! Plus, I never think to buy it, so I decided I should figure out a way to make a tasty mix for myself, so that I could make tacos (or use the seasoning in recipes) anytime.

I’ve been making this recipe for several years now, and I love it (and so does John)! I usually make about 4-5 batches at a time (package them individually in snack-size ziplock bags or small plastic containers) so that they’re always on-hand and ready to use.
