Sauces and Seasonings

The Best Homemade Taco Seasoning

Homemade Taco Seasoning (3 of 5)

I don’t know about you, but I keep homemade tacos on rotation monthly.  Okay fine, sometimes weekly.  But I cringe every time I rip open one of those seasoning packets and realize all of the unnecessary and terrible ingredients plaguing my meal.  Not anymore!  I started doing some research and taste testing, and came up with the best homemade taco seasoning ever!  Not only is it cheaper than the packaged stuff, it tastes a million times better because there are no chemicals or preservatives.  You know exactly what is going in it, and what you’re eating.  Plus, you never have to worry about having it on hand when your taco craving hits.  Taco night is about to get a big upgrade!

P.S. Did I mention that it is also Candida Plan friendly?
