Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix is easier to make than you think! You may never purchase the packets again!
One of the most easiest recipes I make that everyone in my family loves is tacos and for the grown ups, taco salad. I love to make my own Homemade Taco Seasoning and storing in mason jars instead of purchasing the packets from the grocery store.
Making a taco salad is so easy. Just serve the delicious seasoned ground beef over a big salad with crushed tortilla chips on top. Sometimes I’ll even make sure I make extra taco meat so I can enjoy salads for lunch during the week.
I started making my own homemade taco seasoning mix ages ago and it’s so much better for you than the store bought packets, but if that’s what you have on hand, do not let that stop you from enjoying Taco Tuesday with your family!

How to Use the Homemade Taco Seasoning
After browning the meat, add two to three tablespoons of the seasoning mix and 1/4 cup of water. Simmer until the meat is cooked all the way through.
