Forget those taco seasoning mixes in the store. They’re full of hidden MSG and other fillers. Here’s an easy Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe you can make.
Do you do Taco Tuesday? We pretty much do tacos (or any Mexican food for that matter) every other day it seems like in our house. My kids love to make their own tacos and tostadas. We do it buffet-style and let everyone put on their own fixings. It’s a huge hit.
And, of course, I make my own Homemade Taco Seasoning. Why? Well, for one, the store-bought mixes usually contain hidden MSG, like yeast extract, maltodextrin, and “natural flavors”.
They also usually contain ingredient sourced from GMO spices. Second, they are usually expensive compared to making it on your own. At about $1-2 for a packet of pre-made taco seasoning, I make mine for pennies. Plus, I can control what’s in my taco seasoning mix – including making sure everything is organic, gluten free, grain free and Paleo.
How To Use Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe
It’s really simple to make your own Homemade Taco Seasoning mix. Make a big batch and store it in your pantry. Use about 1-2 tbsp of this mix per pound of meat (such as ground beef or turkey) or 1 tbsp (or to taste) to make Spanish rice or refried beans.
