Homemade Taco Seasoning

9:31 AM

Did you grow up with a mom that said...

"if you can make it, don't buy it"
I sure did.
This was my mom's motto especially when it came to seasonings and mixes.
I quickly learned from my mom how to combine lot's of different spices to make one great tasting seasoning.
Now because of her, I know how to make my own ranch seasoning, Italian seasoning, fajita seasoning, and my favorite, taco seasoning.

I love throwing this mix over some turkey or zucchini tacos. I even put it in my Mexican rice I make as a side for tacos and fajitas that is a big crowd pleaser.
