Make Your Own: Bulk Taco Seasoning

Taco seasoning (2)

I’ve been making my own taco seasoning for years, too many to count.  It started as a way to save money, then it morphed into a way to make sure all ingredients were gluten-free, then into wholesome real food ingredients.  By making my own bulk seasoning I save big and control the ingredients: quality and quantity.

I buy seasonings and herbs in bulk.  Chili powder, I buy through amazon.  I buy dried onions in #10 cans, salt in 10lb buckets, and other spices from BJ’s (like Costco).  This makes for frugal seasoning mixes, and the quality of frontier spices surpasses that of what you’ll find in any ole store.

*HELPFUL TIP: Save old Parmesan cheese lids, they fit standard mason jars and are perfect for your own bulk seasoning mixes especially when given as gifts. 

This recipe makes about 4 1/2 cups of seasoning mix.  Great for large families or to give as gifts.  To season taco meat, use 1 1/2 tablespoons of seasoning and 2 tablespoons of water per 1lb of meat or 2 cups of beans.
