Tacos are a fantastic meal, especially during the week. They are simple and quick to prepare, and those taco seasoning packs make the process that much easier. But store-bought taco seasoning mixes are full of artificial flavorings and colorings and MSGs. By making your own taco seasoning to keep on hand, you can have both the time-saving convenience of the pre-packaged stuff and quality spices for your system.
“One thing that I definitely don’t mind making at home is a good seasoning mix. It’s amazing what is hidden in those flavoring packets at the store. Artificial flavorings, colorings, msg, and all sorts of bad stuff. It’s so easy to mix up a batch of seasoning mix, like this ranch mix to have on hand to add to recipes. This homemade taco seasoning is really handy since we eat taco salads about once a month. Just mix all the ingredients up and store in an airtight jar with your other spices and use 1 heaping tablespoon of the spice mix with 1 cup of water for each pound of ground meat.”
