Make tonight Taco Night! We’re big fans of taco night. So coming up with a homemade taco seasoning recipe that is to our liking is a must for our pantry.

I happen to love this recipe for homemade taco seasoning.  I never buy taco seasoning packs now that I’ve tweaked this to our liking!  It’s especially great because I’m able to adjust the spiciness to my liking.  (I’m a big wimp when it comes to spicy food.) I also love how easy it is on the budget. Beats those store bought packs hands down in the cheap department.
