I've been wanting to try making my own taco seasoning for ages, but I still had some I wanted to use up, so I just hadn't gotten around to it. Then, last month when I started planning meals for Camp Outreach, I realized that there is wheat in the taco seasoning I had. Now, ordinarily I might not think a thing of it, but we had some people with gluten sensitivities who were going to be there, and I thought it best to avoid the wheat altogether in the taco meat. So, I finally got around to making some taco seasoning.
I started looking on Pinterest and came across this recipe. It's called the 'best taco seasoning recipe ever' so I figured it ought to be good. Apparently she tried a lot of taco seasoning recipes from around the internet, and this is the one.
Seriously, it's that easy - mix together spices you probably already have on hand (I had everything except usable onion powder. Why is it that onion powder always, always, always turns hard as a rock?) and you get a taco seasoning mix that is really good. I think it has a better flavor than the store bought kind - and no weird ingredients in there, either.
I will definitely be making and using this taco seasoning from now on. I may not even finish that little bit of the store-bought seasoning I have left...
