Homemade Taco Seasoning



Funny story, I was around six months pregnant with my second son when I realized I was making tacos and had run out of taco seasoning. Being pregnant and hormonal, this meant the world was coming to an end.


My husband suggested we make our own. The audacity of this idea infuriated me and left me crying over my soon-to-be ruined tacos.


{Keep in mind this was a few months prior to Paleo}


I’m pretty sure I said some very mean things and told him to finish preparing dinner.


Guess what? We’ve never purchased taco seasoning again!

Instead we’ve come up with our own blend that is flavorful yet not too spicy for the kids.
Naturally free of grains, gluten, dairy, preserves, additives, chemicals, sugars, and all things processed.
Enjoy this homemade taco seasoning on your next taco Tuesday {or any day of the week}! Whether it’s beef, chicken, shrimp, or a veggie, this seasoning will bring on the flavor!
This blend makes four tablespoons which is typically the same amount found in store-bought packets. Double or triple the recipe to keep some on hand and ready to go!
