This healthy, homemade taco seasoning is easy to make from spices that are probably always in your pantry! This is my go to recipe that I truly love so much more than store bought taco seasoning. No more running to the store because you forgot the taco seasoning for dinner!
I have mastered my favorite homemade taco seasoning recipe! This recipe was born several years ago after trying many different recipes in an attempt to find one I liked because I ALWAYS forgot to buy the packets of ready-made taco seasoning at the store. I could never find one that tastes quite right to me, so I just kept experimenting and combining with different spices until it finally morphed into one I love.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s made from common spices most of us always have in our pantry! So, when you on a whim need to make some ground beef for tacos or shredded chicken in the crockpot, you can easily whip this seasoning up! Also bonus...it’s healthier than packaged taco seasoning!
