Homemade Taco Seasoning

Happy New Year, faithful readers! It’s 30 degree in my hometown today, so we’re holed up inside with the heat on. Taco Soup is simmering in the crockpot, and I thought you might like to have the recipe for homemade taco seasoning I put in it. When I used to make taco soup with packaged taco seasoning, it always tasted too salty for me. I looked around on the internet for a good homemade recipe so that I could control the salt and skip the MSG entirely. I first tried this recipe when making tacos one Sunday night. It tasted so much more authentic than the packaged mix. I regularly use it in nachos, tacos, taco soup, and Mexican dips. We really prefer it over packaged mix. The following recipe makes the equivalent of one package of seasoning. I double it for taco soup. If you make up a big batch and keep it on hand, you substitute three tablespoons of the homemade for each package of store-bought mix.
