Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe

Ok, I know as couponers we can get ⭐️ taco seasoning mix practically for free after coupons. But the pre-made packets are so full of sodium and all sorts of unknown ingredients and it is not that hard to make your own.

When you use this ⭐️ Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe you know exactly what is in your taco seasoning and if you are adventurous you can play with the ingredients to suit your tastes.

If you like it a little more spicy, add more cayenne pepper. Love cumin? Add more. I personally love cumin and add more to mine, plus a little crushed red pepper flakes (saved packets from pizza delivery!) to add some extra heat.
