Whole30 Taco Seasoning Recipe
For the longest time I used to think that making my own seasonings was a huge waste of my time. I started to pay a little more attention to what was really in those store bought mixes and I decided to give it a try and never looked back! When I make my seasonings now, I double or triple the recipe, and keep them in air tight containers so I can use them on a whim at any time!
Tacos are one of our weekly staple meals. I like to switch it up between ground turkey, chicken , and occasionally ground beef. I love having taco meat on hand for a few days to make a salad for myself at lunch or other dishes for dinner another night of the week.
