Taco Seasoning

 I have tried about five taco seasoning recipes and none of them were quite right, until I stumbled upon this one a couple years ago.  I can’t remember where I first saw this… All Recipes, CopyKat Recipes… something like that!

This is now my go-to taco seasoning recipe.  We usually make a master batch of this (my master batches are usually at least quadruple recipes) and store it in the pantry in a mason jar so we have it on hand.  

We use this for tacos and any other recipe that calls for taco seasoning.

It smells so good!

Tacos!  Yum!  We like Street Tacos, Shredded Chicken Tacos, Guacamole, Taco Salad, Tostadas, Beef and Bean Burritos, Breaskfast Burritos, Black Beans and Rice, and Cheesey Chip Dip with tortilla chips.  We enjoy a lot of Mexican food around here!
