My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning

I grew up with having soft tacos tacos often.  My mom would brown the ground beef and sprinkle in a packet of taco seasoning and be done with it.  So when I got married, I made them the same way.  My husband would always end up with a slight stomach ache the next day.  It wasn't until years later that we discovered the cause of those stomach aches was MSG.  And guess what?  MSG is in most taco seasoning packets!
Super easy homemade Taco Seasoning recipe!  Tastes way better than any packet.  |  My Name Is Snickerdoodle
I played around with some recipes I found and came up with one that my family loves.  It super simple and tastes even better than anything you could find in the store.  Of course you can make it as spicy you like, but we do it pretty mild for me and my boys.

  1. We have one that is similar, but it's almost out. I'll have to try yours. The red pepper flakes sound yummy! I love those extra little bits of heat.

  2. I make my own, too but I never pay attention to how much I throw in so I'll use your portions to make a big batch to store! Also, throw in some paprika, you won't regret it!
