Why We Love This Whole30 Taco Seasoning

First, it’s just so easy. This taco seasoning uses only 5 spices, which you might already have on hand. They are basic spices you can find at most grocery stores. I get most of my spices in the bulk bins at Winco or in bulk from Sam’s Club to get the best price.

Finally, tacos are one of the fastest meals you can make! They are my go-to for a busy night or when my kids are cooking. All of my teenagers can make this seasoning, cooked into ground beef, to make tacos for dinner when I am gone. And that, my friend, is priceless!

      Yes! Wanting to break the habit of picking up that little pouch at the grocery store, I had been looking for a good quick recipe for taco seasoning. We did add some paprika to ours to give it a little more of a kick. My husband didn’t know what to put together one week when he was planning meals and went to the packet. Ugh- can’t even stomach it now!!

      I have tried multiple recipes for taco seasoning and was never thrilled with any of them. I had given up hope and gone back to purchasing packets and then I found Autumn’s recipe….and I’ve never bought another packet and I never will! Go make this one now, you won’t regret it!!

      • YES YES YES! I love that this was the IT recipe for you after trying many. It’s so great to be able to make this one from scratch and not have to buy all those packets. Thanks so much for the reviews, I so appreciate it!
