We really enjoy a taco night around here….. Taco Tuesday, Taco Wednesday, Taco Thursday, Taco any day of the week! You get my point, tacos are yummy. I, of course had to figure out a way to make the best homemade taco seasoning mix that I could.
Store bought from a packet just doesn’t make the cut around here. Besides the fact that most of them contain MSG and preservatives, they just don’t taste as good as homemade taco seasoning.
I’ve spent years (yes, years) working on and tweaking this recipe to meet the expectations of our taste buds and finally….. winner winner, taco dinner.
Not only is this seasoning mix super tasty, its very quick to throw together. You can take it a step further and multiply the recipe to keep it in bulk. The next time you make tacos, simply scoop out the amount you need and your good to go. Easy peasy, and we can all use time saving kitchen hacks, can’t we?
Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix
First off, measure out your ingredients.
Place them in a bowl and mix well.
Add the seasoning mixture to about 1 cup of warm water and mix until dissolved and well incorporated.
Pour the mixture over 1-1.5 lbs of meat and simmer until most liquid is evaporated.
Now, serve up in your favorite taco style way.
This recipe makes tacos that everyone in this household just love. That’s not an easy task when you’re feeding a large crew like mine. Seeing all of my babies happy with a meal makes my mama heart smile. Now, go have yourself a yummy taco dinner.
