Homemade Taco Seasoning combines 7 ingredients to spice up your taco filling. Make your own seasoning mix and never buy the packaged mix again!
We take Taco Tuesday very seriously in our household. It started back when we were in college and Zack lived with his roommate, Spencer. Every Tuesday I would go over to their apartment and we would make ground beef tacos with rice and beans. It became a tradition that we took with us after we graduated.
Zack and Spencer still lived together and I lived alone in my studio apartment not far away. I continued going over every Tuesday night to make dinner, but we started switching it up a bit. Instead of ground beef, we would try ground turkey or chicken! Ground beef will forever be my fave though!
Now that Zack and I live together, we have to be more thoughtful about how much food we're making if we don't want leftovers for the following two weeks. We started buying pre-seasoned chicken to cook on our contact grill, but this week we're going back to ground beef! Heck yes!!
In the coming weeks, I would love to learn how to make homemade taco rice. But for now, I'll focus on homemade taco seasoning!
