Spices are available at low prices at your local dollar store and in grocery store spice aisles. And I love being able to adjust the spice level and control the salt.
I keep it in an airtight mason jar in my cabinet and it always looks so pretty when the mason jar is sitting on my counter. So pretty that friends and family hint that they would love to have their own pretty jar of that seasoning too! And that’s why every holiday season I make large batches of my Homemade Taco Seasoning, fill those pretty little jars and give them as gifts. You should do the same!
