Taco Seasoning

taco-seasoning1Being a native born Californian I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD. When Taco Bell moved into CA I was in 7th heaven. Next to home cooking Taco Bell and Der Wienerscnitzel were my favorite foods. My husband who liked the high class Italian restaurants or better his mothers home cooking claimed I was a really cheap date.
So one of my ALWAYS ON HAND seasonings was McCormick Taco Seasoning … of late it has become a little too salty for my taste. Probably because I use so much of it when I have to flavor something Mexican with it.

So I read the ingredients on the label and came up with my own combination.
Like my other home made seasonings I make a big batch and store it in my pantry. It is a favorite seasoning for most Mexican food I make so I go through it quickly. Spices are not suppose to sit on your shelf for 50 years (though I am sure I have some from the past that old) 😉

This is a great quick Mexican seasoning that is my GO TO. Making your own allows you to know exactly what is in your seasoning. Usually things that you can pronounce and easily available in the super market.
