Making your own DIY Taco Seasoning couldn’t be easier! Once you make your own, you will never go back to store-bought again!
I have been a big fan of bulk spices for a long time. Once you start buying spices from the bulk section, rather than in the little jars, you quickly realize that not only is it cheaper, but the spices are fresher – so much fresher that you will start to wonder if what you were getting in those expensive, prepackaged bottles was even the same thing! That is the main reason I started making my own taco seasoning, instead of buying it in the little packets.
Of course, another benefit of making your own taco seasoning is that you have total control over the end result. If you really love a certain spice, you can add more, or if you aren’t a fan of something, you can use less or leave it out. And not to mention the sodium content! Those packets at the store are usually packed with sodium, and when you make your own mix you have full control over how much salt goes into the mix.
I made this taco seasoning mix for my Chicken Taco Pasta, and I like to keep a little jar of it in my pantry for other quick weeknight dinners. This is my favorite mix, but feel free to adjust it to your own preferences and make if your own!
