Homemade Taco Seasoning

My family LOVES tacos.  Really, who doesn’t?  I love them because they’re so quick and easy to throw together, also, delicious! I usually cook up the meat, and then set up a d.i.y topping bar on the counter so that everyone can help themselves and dress their taco exactly as they like.taco_seasoning_full_plate.jpegFor years I would always just buy packets of taco seasoning.  It wasn’t until I started eating a ketogenic diet that I decided to start making my own – there are a lot of carbs in those little packets!

It literally takes less than two minutes to measure out the spices, and the taste is so much better than store bought.  I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner!

It’s great for tacos, naturally, but it’s also awesome in casseroles, dips, soups, the list goes on.  I have a couple of recipes I’m working on that use this seasoning blend, so stay tuned for those!taco_seasoning_close_uptaco_seasoning_final.jpeg
