Homemade Taco Seasoning

I enjoy making convenience items at home in order to create healthy homemade meals for my family and to save money. I made a bulk Ranch Seasoning and a Chili Seasoning Mix a few months ago and they’ve been really convenient to have on hand.

Plus, I don’t have to worry about running out of those little packets. I especially enjoy making different spice mixes because I use them frequently while freezer cooking.

I love taco seasoning and use it frequently in recipes like my Creamy Chicken Taco Soup and Southwest Chicken Casserole, but those packets can really add up.

Even if you shop at Aldi and buy them for .33 each you’re still better off to just pick of a few large spice bottles for $1 each and mix up a bulk batch of seasoning for yourself.

You can customize this recipe to fit your tastes and use different chili powders, etc. if you want to be creative, but here is a basic mix that you’re sure to enjoy using nine common herbs and spices.
