Taco seasoning is so easy to make, I haven’t bought a package or bulk of McCormicks taco seasoning in a long time.
While most of the time the ingredients in these packages are fairly clean they till do add anti caking agents and preservatives. So knowing whats in mine and knowing for us, that its organic seasonings, really makes this next level for us.
I place ours in a jason jar, half a jar lasts such a long time. but if you needed more you could double this recipe.
We primarily put this on beef tacos but I’ve also used it as a fajita mix as well. We just add a little bit of salsa to the mix! It never fails, its so easy and yummy!
As far as saving money, each herb can be a little bit spendy but when you see how many times you use those jars over the course of the year it probably saves you a little bit in the long run!
