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 than anything you will find pre-made at a store.  This recipe has very simple taco seasoning ingredients that make 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 Homemade 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.
