DIY Taco Seasoning Packet Recipe

by Robin

 

 

There are plenty of benefits to making your own Taco Seasoning Packets:

  • Less expensive.  You probably already have these spices.

  • Less processed. You can pronounce everything that goes into this recipe.  (Well, maybe not Cumin.  Which is it: "Coo-min" or "Come-in"?  Or maybe it's "Cue-min"?)


  • Less sodium.  Way, way less.  This recipe has the same amount in 6 packets as 1 packet of "Old El Paso".

  • Efficient time wise.  This recipe makes the equivalent of 6 packets at once.  This takes nanoseconds longer than making one.
