Homemade Taco Seasoning

When it comes to spices, in my opinion, you can never have enough.

It’s the worst though when you either run out of your favorite seasoning or find the seasoning you purchased to lack flavor (or sometimes, be too salty).

That is why I love making my own homemade seasoning whenever I can.

This homemade taco seasoning mix is perfect for Taco Tuesday, putting in Homemade Chili and anytime your food needs a little kick.
