Easy Taco Seasoning

Easy Taco Seasoning Blend

Who else loves tacos?!

As a plant-based foodie, tacos are often a weekly occurrence. They’re so simple to put together and they’re perfect for sneaking in veggies! One of the dilemmas I always have with tacos is seasoning the ingredients. I’m usually pretty good at winging it or just seasoning them to taste, but it can be a hit or miss. Sometimes I find myself trying to doctor them up after the fact, which can result in a sub-par meal.

Easy Taco Seasoning

Well folks, I’m over it. I started making my own taco seasonings about two years ago, but the problem is I’m just too lazy to make it sometimes. In fact, I probably haven’t made it in almost a year. Last week I made one of my new taco favorites (these portobello mushroom fajitas) and I decided whip up a batch of seasoning to pair with them.

The good news is, once you make it you’ll have leftovers for meals to come. But I guess how many meals depends on how often you make tacos. When I was making this regularly, I was making the seasoning blend probably every other month. Which isn’t bad at all!

You’ll find that a lot  (if not all) of the seasoning components you probably already have in your home. I made sure to use common ingredients so that you don’t have to worry about picking up something from the store you’ll likely never use again. I love this blend because it’s not too spicy and it’s not bland so you can use this for folks with a variety of different pallets. Of course, if you’re looking for a spicy blend add in some additional cayenne pepper and you should be good to go!

Next time you make tacos, be sure to give this blend a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!

    Good bye store bought taco seasoning. Hello homeade taco seasoning blend. On my journey to decrease warehouse/factory made items and increase making items from scratch (I want to actually be able to read the ingredients to things I am consuming), I’m happy to be able to add taco seasoning to the list.
