Never buy taco seasoning packets ever again! This is so simple to throw together and you can keep it in an airtight container in your pantry. I like to make a big batch so I always have some on hand when I need it. Tacos are my go-to meal when I need something quick that everyone will eat. Use it for burritos and taco salad too!
This recipe equals the same amount as one taco seasoning packet that you buy at the store. I use this recipe so much that I have the recipe taped to the inside of my spice cabinet, but I now have it memorized so I don’t even need the printout anymore. You can use this recipe for any that call for a packet of taco seasoning. I like how it tastes better than the packets and I like that there’s less sodium. But even if you don’t use this every time you need taco seasoning, it’s nice to know just so you don’t have to make an unexpected trip to the store when you’re out of packets! Enjoy!
