Make Your Own: Taco Seasoning

My kids love taco-night.  I hate the thought of feeding them a bunch of unnecessary preservatives and additives like MSG.  The solution: Make Your Own Taco Seasoning.  It takes literally 2 extra minutes, but is packed with more flavor and only contains the good stuff.  And it’s cheaper!  Love-Hate to Love-Love= Win-Win.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.” Matthew 5:13 (NASB)


Combine all ingredients into a clean, dry bowl and mix well.  Equal to one taco-seasoning package. Use with 1-1.5 lbs ground beef.


Note: I make our taco seasoning mild and adjust the spiciness with crushed red pepper according to adult preferences after the children are served.

God bless!
