Homemade Taco Seasoning

I do not like using store-bought seasonings and sauces so I will make my own versions whenever possible. This recipe for taco seasoning is my favorite go to not just for tacos but for lots of other recipes as a well-balanced spice mix. You can make it as spicy or mild as you like. You’re the creator make it the way you like it.
