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!

Easy Steak Fajita’s with Homemade Seasoning

Fajita's

I like to have a wide variety of food we eat at home. I never like eating the same meal over and over again. I also like to try different versions of the same foods as well. This is a new fajita recipe, with homemade seasoning to use rather then using seasoning out of a packet. It is pretty mild and not overly strong in seasoned flavor.

 

 [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:11]
 
 
Serve on warm tortilla’s and top with a dollop of sour cream and cheese if you want!  This is more of a mild seasoning, as I don’t like super strong flavor or too spicy. So you can always jazz it up if you want!

I love Taco Bell’s Chicken Quesadilla’s! Well I found a fabulous recipe that I thought I would share with you all! They have a little kick, but it isn’t that bad, as I am not a lover of super hot things.  I found a Copy Cat Taco Bell Chicken Quesadilla recipe on Food.com and changed it just a little bit.

Pro Tip:

This is not needed but it does make life easier! I LOVE the Quesadilla Makers, they give your tortilla the perfect crust in minutes! Plus if you want a small quesadilla just fold it in half  to cook. Best of all it is non-stick so the clean up is a breeze!

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tsp minced jalepenos
3 tsp jalapeno juice from minced jalepenos
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 dash salt
— — — — — — — — — —
 4 flour tortillas
Shredded Chicken – I used 1 package of Chicken Tenderloins ( I pre-cooked the chicken and shredded it)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
 2 slices process American cheese

How To Make: 

1. Mix your spices and pepper juice, mayo and peppers all together! Everything above the line is used in the sauce. 
2.  Apply some sauce onto one side of the tortilla, and place it in a preheated skillet. Then apply 1 slice of the cheese, and add shredded cheese to your liking as well as the chicken.
3. Then Place the other tortilla on top, and allow it to cook for a few minutes until it is a little golden brown. Then you will flip the quesadilla over and allow it to cook on the other side.
4. Once it is done, put on plate and cut into pieces and enjoy!
