Homemade Taco Seasoning: The Best Substitution to Store Bought

I love to make my own seasoning mixes. And this homemade taco seasoning is the best substitution to a store bought package. I always have a jar of this seasoning in my spice drawer. So if you are looking to make your own homemade taco seasoning, you have come to the right place.

One of the best parts about making your own seasoning mixes is that you know exactly what you are eating. This taco seasoning is a mixture of spices that I always have stocked in my pantry. There are no fillers and no weird ingredients – just easy spices that come together to make a delicious taco seasoning. And it will last for months when placed in an airtight jar. So it is a great substitute to buying packages of premade taco seasoning at the store.

Because I always have this in my spice drawer, it makes meal prep so much easier. I use this very frequently for my taco salad, which is the perfect meal for a warm summer day. It is also great for your Taco Tuesday Tacos. Or any of your other favorite recipes that call for a taco seasoning. So make a batch and store it in an airtight jar for when you need it!

“For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance. For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.”

1 Timothy 4:8-10
