Spice up your Taco Tuesday or any other day with some homemade taco seasoning for your favorite taco filling. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of buying seasonings where the very 1st ingredient is salt and look heavier on white granules than spice. In this homemade seasoning, you can enjoy savory tacos with some good beef, chicken, fish, shrimp or even vegetarian options with less sodium. You can use this seasoning with any recipe that calls for taco seasoning or a seasoning packet. Homemade taco seasoning can replace store bought taco seasoning packets that are full of too much sodium and sometimes MSG and other additives. 2 tablespoons of this homemade seasoning equals 1 taco seasoning packet.
Taco Spice vs Taco “Salt”
Making a homemade taco seasoning such as this one let’s you control your sodium better, unlike the store bought seasoning mixes. Those are loaded with so much sodium that if you actually want to just add more spice, you’re simply adding more sodium. I purposefully concocted this recipe to allow you to control your sodium better. If you need a little more salt after tasting your cooking, just add a little to taste. It’s that easy. I’ve seen too many recipes, even other homemade taco seasoning recipes that add so much salt I just cringe. You should be adding flavor to your tacos instead of more salt.
Making this seasoning only takes a few minutes. You probably have all the spices in your cabinet already. So, go ahead and spice up some tacos the wholemade way and enjoy!
