Super Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I like to save money by making my own homemade food like this Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning.  In this fast paced world we live in, it’s so easy to just live off of processed food. I am guilty of this from time to time myself. A few years ago, I decided to try to make some of my own seasonings. I was so surprised by how easy it is and how much more flavorful our food tastes!

Easy Homemade Taco Seasoning

My family absolutely loves any food that is Mexican or Tex-Mex. We could live off of tacos and be completely content. Okay, I would still need chocolate to survive, but we could almost survive off of tacos alone! The best part of most of the Mexican dishes I make is that they are inexpensive and I can use my own Homemade Taco Seasoning to save even more money. Most of the ingredients you probably already have in your cabinet, so this is an inexpensive recipe as well!

This seasoning is great because it doesn’t have all the sodium and you know exactly each of the ingredients that goes in it. You can add it to tacos, burritos, enchiladas or any other Mexican dish you can think of. It is also delicious if you add it to some ranch dressing for a little kick!  I would also recommend my sister’s Easy Beef Enchilada Recipe!  Just add 2 heaping tablespoons and 1 cup of water to the browned hamburger and simmer for 5 minutes.

I also love to decorate my kitchen with homemade spices and seasonings. The look of mason jars filled with different seasonings adds a special “homey” feeling and an inviting atmosphere. If you plan to use Mason Jars, you can add easy flip-top lids for quick access.

Another handy option is these glass spice bottles that have a shaker top built in. They are perfect for storing spices and they’re inexpensive too!
