Homemade Taco Seasoning

Homemade Taco Seasoning

A few months ago, while working on a blog post for a layered vegan refried bean and guacamole dip, I wanted to add taco seasoning to the guacamole. I saw a recipe on Pinterest for taco seasoning and had all the ingredients on hand in the pantry.  Never will I buy pre-packaged taco seasoning packets again! I like knowing exactly what is in my seasoning and it makes me feel better knowing that it is not full of additives and preservatives. Now I quadruple the recipe and store in a recycled jar in my spice cabinet. I use taco seasoning to flavor black beans, homemade refried beans, soup, guacamole, tempeh, veggie burgers, and anything else that needs a little spice.
