Homemade seasoning mixes are one of my biggest time-savers in the kitchen. I have about twenty that I keep stocked in my spice cabinet. This taco seasoning recipe is one that I have been tweaking for years. I think it is finally the perfect blend of Mexican flavor and spice.
This super-easy taco seasoning blend is the foundation for some of my favorite recipes. Sprinkle a few teaspoons on chicken, make fajitas, or my super easy Enchilada Casserole. And of course taco Tuesdays need this taco seasoning.
I use this seasoning blend almost weekly with my Easy Ground Beef and Onions to make a simple protein that I can toss on top of a salad or my Spicy Mexican Slaw.
