Homemade Taco Seasoning

Lou Kostura


I mix up a batch of this and always keep in on hand for my Mexican dishes, taco's, fajitas's, etc. I actually keep it in a old 16oz, taco season spice jar from when I would actually buy the stuff. It will keep for quite a while, and this recipe will fill my 16 oz. jare about 1/2 or so.
