DIY Taco Seasoning

DIY Taco SeasoningJust popping in quickly today to share this “recipe” for a Mexican spice combo perfect for seasoning tacos, fajitas, etc. I mentioned in my meal prep post last week that I forgot to pick up a packet of taco seasoning for the chicken I was going to make in my crockpot so I whipped up my own. Obviously buying the mixture is way easier, but if you’re ever in a pinch, just combine the spices you already have in your pantry!

Pin now, make it next time you space out at the grocery store. 😉 DIY Taco Seasoning
