Good Morning! Is everyone ready for the weekend? I had looked forward to going back to school but boy this first week back is killer. Last night I came home with two papers to type for Communication Arts and a quiz to study for. I ended up falling asleep at 8:15 pm!
Today I wanted to share with everyone a recipe for making your own taco seasoning. We love tacos but I always seem to run out of the store bought seasoning packets when it comes time to make them. I searched for recipes and found many. Then I looked at the ingredient list on the back of our favorite one to compare it to what I was finding. This is what I came up with and it turned out really good. It wasn't really spicey which is one of the things we liked about it.
Combine all the ingredients in a jar that has a tight fitting lid. Mix it by shaking it well.
We use about 3 tablespoons per pound of meat. The pack you buy in the store has about that much in it. Store the leftover mix in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. (If it last that long!)
I am constantly on the lookout for items that I can make from scratch that will save us money, so I will be adding to the list of seasonings and mixes. Rest assured that I will be sharing those recipes with you!
