HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING RECIPE

If you ever walked down the cereal aisle with a child that has peanut and tree nut allergies, you understand how frustrating it can be. Even if there aren’t nuts included in a product as an ingredient, there is frequently the warning that the item was manufactured in the same facility that processes peanuts and tree nuts. In our household, that immediately disqualifies that product from entering our shopping cart.

WHAT IS TACO SEASONING?

Taco seasoning can be used as a mix to add to ground beef while sauteeing for tacos. It can also be used as a dry rub for chicken, pork, steak, etc to give the meat a heartier flavor. However, this seasoning doesn’t have to be used on just tacos! Soups and pastas are also good uses for this seasoning.

WHAT DOES THIS HOMEMADE TACO SEASONING RECIPE TASTE LIKE?

I prefer taco seasoning that has a balance of salt and other flavors. Most of the store-bought stuff seems to have salt, and cumin, and lacks a lot of depth. This taco spice blend definitely has salt and cumin, but there is enough oregano, paprika, and garlic flavors to add dimension.

CAN YOU MAKE EASY TACO SEASONING AHEAD OF TIME?

Absolutely! I like to have a jar of this all sorts of homemade spices and seasoning on hand for whenever the craving strikes. As a rule of thumb, when making spice blends: the earliest expiration date on your ingredients is now the new expiration date for your homemade taco spice blends.
