Homemade Taco Seasoning

by GettingFreedom on January 28, 2013

The last few years have been entertaining to look around my home and see what items I can make on my own instead of relying on the grocery store.  It’s amazing to me that with a simple mind-shift, I view everything so differently now.

Pre-made seasonings are no exception.  Sure, buying a packet is pretty handy.  On the flip side, though, having another thing to mess with is annoying.  If you already have a stocked spice cabinet, why not put it to good use?  Those spices will begin to lose their flavor and potency after a while anyway, so you might as well use them up!
