How to make taco seasoning
Just as with the other three homemade seasoning recipes, making a dry seasoning is super easy.
All you need to do is measure the spices as mentioned in the taco seasoning recipe below. As I didn’t have onion powder and ground cumin, I used my pestle and mortar to grind whole cumin and whole onion to powder.
This takes only a minute or so. Then add all the other spices in a bowl or the mortar and stir well to make sure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
This recipe is for two servings but if you increase times the number of servings you can put the spice mix in a glass jar. Store it in your kitchen cabinet.
