Here is another easy, versatile spice mix to make at home! Making your Easy Taco Seasoning will save you a bunch of money and takes less than 5 minutes!
Do you make your own spice mixes? If not, you really should! Not only will it save you room in your spice drawer, it will save you a bunch of moolah!
Spice Mixes are one of the easiest things to start making in the kitchen! They generally take 5 minutes, or less! If you make your own mixes, you control the ingredients and you don’t end up with any of the “extras” that the spice companies add, to make the product shelf stable for long periods of time.
Commercial Spice Mixes Contain Other Chemicals
Those extras include, but are not limited to anti-caking agents (cellulose, or wood pulp), MSG (monosodium glutamate), a “flavor enhancer”, silicon dioxide, calcium phosphates or magnesium silicates. There are both organic and man made anti-caking agents, and most are considered safe for human consumption, but why not just make your own small batch, organic spice mixes and avoid all of the above?
- Measure spices.
- Add to jar or tupperware with lid. Shake.
Hold the Salt!!
The one thing I never add to my spice mixes is salt! No matter what container you mix your spice mix in, the salt will draw water from the humidity in the air. Just add salt when you are making your dish!
Easy Taco Seasoning is very versatile!
Taco Seasoning is not just great when you make tacos! Taco Seasoning is a great addition to eggs, chilies, enchiladas, burritos, dips, casseroles, skillet meals and more!
