The lettuce gives my taco some crunch.
But when you look at the ingredients on the back of a taco seasoning packet, there are a lot of ingredients I'm not sure I want my kids eating... like Maltodextrin, Monosodium Glutamate, Silicon Dioxide? No way! I decided to make my own taco seasoning and it is delicious!
Most of the ingredients you need are already in your spice cabinet.
You measure it out;
pour it in a bowl;
mix it with a spoon; and
store it in an airtight container until ready to use.
A few caveats: This makes approximately what comes in a pre-measured taco seasoning package you find at the grocery store. Depending on how spicy you and your guests like their food, use as little or as much as you want. Buen Provecho!
