Recipe: Homemade Taco Seasoning

There are times when I just crave something - on this particular night - it was tacos. I WANTED TACOS. Well guess what - no taco shells and no taco seasoning. Grrrr. So I went to my standby - Pinterest and figured it out. 

Sure enough I found a recipe for homemade taco seasoning - and luckily - I had every ingredient! The funny part of it was - the recipe emptied out half of them! It was a world of kismet!

It's extremely simple - you mix all the ingredients together and boom you're done. The recipe below makes 3 Tablespoons which is what's needed for 1 pound of ground meat.  If you like it - multiply it up and make enough to last a while. I store mine in a little half pint mason jar.

And there you have it - I got my tacos - well nachos anyway. This seasoning recipe is definitely a keeper! I hope you enjoy it too!
