Why buy premade, prepackaged taco seasoning that’s full of who knows what? It’s so easy to make taco seasoning from scratch!
I haven’t bought packaged taco seasoning for years. Like years and years. I mean, have you ever read the ingredients on those packages? Ack. For a long time I used to just mix spices into taco meat as I made it. But then I realized that by mixing up my taco seasoning from scratch ahead of time in larger batches I could save time with meal prep.
Just like having a package in the cupboard.
Only I can pronounce each of the ingredients in mine!
