Everyday Cheapskate: How to Make Taco Seasoning Mix and What to Do With It

Mary Hunt on

Seasoning packets from the supermarket may be convenient, but they have drawbacks -- not the least of which is they're relatively expensive! I just checked Lawry's Taco Spices and Seasonings Mix -- $1.57 for one packet! I just hate to pay that much for so little. And I don't have to because I've got a great recipe to make taco seasoning mix myself, using ordinary spices I have already. As a bonus, I know exactly what's in it and how old the ingredients are.

The recipes that follow call for the amount of seasoning you would find in the typical supermarket seasoning packet -- about 4 1/2 tablespoons of mix.

While you could make the amount you need as you need it, a better idea is to make a bunch and then keep it in a tightly sealed jar on your spice rack. It'll come in handy more times than you can imagine. The recipe multiplies well.

Enjoy this simple mix and the two family-friendly recipes that follow for both beef and chicken tacos. Yum!
