About 7 or 8 years ago I found a recipe for taco seasoning mix in a book of master mixes I used to have. I had always used the prepackaged envelopes of taco seasoning, but decided to try my hand at making my own. I have never turned back. Sure it takes a little longer to measure everything out, but for those who love to cook and really appreciate that fresher taste, this is the way to go. Below is the recipe I use for taco seasoning, as well as my own recipe for salsa. Now because I cook for 6 (7 when my father in law is here) I double the recipe below. This recipe will feed 3-4.
Layer taco meat, cheese, lettuce and salsa into hard or soft taco shells, or you can pile everything on top of tortilla chips like I do :)
