The other day I was looking at the commercial brand taco seasoning container. I noticed on the ingredients list that it included all sorts of stuff that was not just seasoning. At that point, I decided to try and make my own Taco Seasoning Recipe to lessen the amount of all those extra chemicals, preservatives, etc that my family ingests. Every little bit helps, right?
