A new recipe on Wednesday?! Popping in today to surprise you guys with the easiest taco seasoning ever. Made from ingredients you probably already have on hand and perfect for just about any kind protein. And you will need this taco seasoning for the recipe tomorrow, so stay tuned!
Have you ever looked at some of the taco seasonings in the store? Especially some that come in those tacos kit boxes. Not going to lie, I used to love when my mom bought those boxes. Whether it was just the hard taco shells with taco seasoning or one of the crazy kits to make an epic dinner, I knew dinner was going to be delicious. A lot of time they are filled with a crap ton of salt, preservatives, and ever sugar sometimes! Why do you need sugar in your taco seasoning?
The answer is, you don’t. I’ve been making this homemade taco seasoning for awhile now and use it in most of my Mexican or taco themed recipes, like these taco boats or stuffed peppers. So I figured it was time to just write a post for it so you can always have it on hand. It’s made with the spices you most likely think about when you think of tacos, plus a little secret I love using on meat – cinnamon. It adds a little sweetness to balance out the spiciness.
I’ve linked the spices below, but if your grocery store has a bulk spice section, I would suggest stocking up on the spices there to make this taco seasoning. It is one of the cheapest ways to get spices as you can get the perfect amount you need without buying a whole bottle.
We use this taco seasoning to spice up lots of our meals – from adding to ground beef, shredded chicken, sautéed veggies, or even on eggs. It’s great for meal prep too!
