When I first started making this I was on a dairy and soy free diet. I had no idea how to make homemade taco seasoning and thought it was a lot of work. I quickly realized that this was probably the easiest and tastiest thing you could spend time making. Not to mention it is much healthier then anything you will find pre-made at a store. This recipe has very simple taco seasoning ingredients that make a very tasty taco meat for tacos, taco salad or anything else you may use the seasoning on.
There are 2 ways you can make this Home made taco seasoning recipe. You can make it in bulk and store it and use it a tablespoon at a time (this is what I do), or you can make it as you use it.
