I am trying to use less prepackaged mixes in my kitchen and came across this recipe.  The website is www.theyummylife.com/taco-seasoning-mix.  Be sure to visit this site and check out Monica’s recipes that use this versatile seasoning for more than just taco’s.  If you want to make this for a gift, she also has tags that you can download with directions.

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until well combined.
  2. Or, whisk together in bowl.
  3. Store in airtight container.

Note:  Adjust or omit cayenne for more or less heat.
