Hacks like this, for homemade taco seasoning, are great examples of why I am a dedicated bulk shopper. I purchase everything in bulk, whenever possible. I love having everything I need, to make whatever I want, at any moment, and it fits the budget. Gone, are the days when I have to run back to the store for something stupid like a little taco seasoning packet when I am in the middle of frying hamburger and realize I don't have taco seasoning. This recipe for taco seasoning is super easy, and in my opinion it has a couple of things I think others are missing in them. It doesn’t call for anything you wouldn't already have in your spice rack already.
It's as easy as adding all of the measured out ingredients into a mixing bowl. Then... you must whisk it. Whisk it real good 😉
Store in an air tight container. Use 1 to 2 heaping tablespoons per pound of ground beef, and be a slave to spice packets, no more!!!
