I was talking to some friends about how to make meal prep faster or more efficient. One way to simplify meal prep is having some components pre-made. (Bisquick, Italian Dressing Seasoning, etc) I know it sounds obvious, but I’m thinking I can’t be the only one scrambling at meal time? Please tell me I’m not!
If you’re anything like me, you like “Mexican” flavors. Well, you’re in luck today. We’re making a cheap, easy, and flavorful taco seasoning! You’ll know every component going in AND it’s customizable to your preferences. For example, we’re not huge fans of cumin. I know it adds a nice flavor, but I certainly don’t want to easily identify the flavor. That’s why you see so much of everything else and just a smidgen of cumin hanging around in the corner. If you like cumin, just add a bit more. :) I also didn’t add any salt to the mix since I like to vary the amount depending on how I’m using the taco seasoning. You can add in salt to the mix or just add it to your final dish. :)
A quick, easy, and tasty taco seasoning you can throw together in minutes!
