    I love this homemade taco seasoning for several reasons! The first-is that I already had these spices in my cabinet so I didn't spend extra for just taco seasoning. The second-in-command I have people in my family that cannot eat wheat, regular taco seasoning has wheat so I hae to buy gluten free, which costs more and is exactly what I made using this recipe!

    My family loves this recipe! It is so flavourful without all the extra additives. I discovered it when I came home to make supper and we had no Taco seasoning. This is my go to taco seasoning. I don't buy anymore packets. I save my money and buy spices for much less.  -  01 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
