This Homemade Taco Seasoning Is All We Want to Taco-Bout

Finished Seasoning

I'm going to be honest. I'm only recently getting into Mexican food. When my roommates and I decide on dinners for the week, I have been embracing Mexican dishes more, especially more creative recipes. Not having taco seasoning on hand has definitely happened more than once, and we usually throw together two to ten spices that we think may be good. It usually comes out less than thrilling. This extra-easy homemade taco seasoning recipe from Cooking Classy is a must-know for when you're inevitably out of taco seasoning. The best part? It's made of spices you probably already have in your kitchen.

"Taco seasoning" is for much more than tacos. Add to burritos, chili, rice, soup, dip, veggies, salsa, or pretty much anything you're looking to give a little flavor.
