Does the world need yet one more recipe for homemade Taco Seasoning Mix? It's a great recipe for taco seasoning blend, and it has so far worked very whenever I've made Tacos, Taco Salad, or nearly any casserole that calls for taco seasoning. I copied the recipe from a magazine from the late 1970s when I was a new bride and started to cook for my family, and I've adjusted it over the years until I hit that perfect amount for each ingredient. But I'm sure it's quite similar to most similar Taco Seasoning recipes you'll find on pretty much every recipe site and food blog.
