This taco seasoning is very versatile and can be used to flavour up tacos, soups, or as a seasoning for meat or roasted vegetables! Make up a big batch and have it ready to go for a quick and easy meal!

I am in so LOVE with this taco seasoning! In our house, we use this seasoning mix at least 1-2 times per week…no joke! We generally make up a big batch of this mix and store it in a mason jar and it makes the process of whipping up tasty, yet flavourful meals SO much easier, especially on those busy weeknights. You can use it to sprinkle on meat for tacos (one of our favourite weekday meals!), in chili or soup, or as a seasoning on chicken or sweet potato fries! I swear I sprinkle this stuff on EVERYTHING….it’s really versatile!

I’ve never been a fan of the store-bought seasoning mixes because they’re always loaded with additives and additional sodium. Whereas if you make it yourself, you can control exactly what’s going into the mix! This recipe makes about half a cup of seasoning, so it should last you a little while. Use as little or as much as you’d like to flavour up your next meal!
