I’m not sure where July went. I blinked and it was August already! So, it’s catch up time again. I’ll start with a recipe I promised my daughter I would post…
I started making my own taco seasoning when I would run out of the packets of seasoning, but I never found the exact right mixture to continue making my own until now. I started playing with a base recipe and found an ingredient mixture that everyone seemed to like better than the packets. It’s easy to modify to fit your likes, so give it a try and let me know how you changed it.
Fast, easy and worth it!
