How To Make Taco Seasoning? It's Cinco De Mayo and all your friends are coming over to celebrate Mexican Independence day? Okey maybe not it's August and not May and I don't have any guests coming over. This is the perfect Taco Seasoning recipe I've found. It is great to add to your favorite Taco mix.

If you've never put together any kind of seasoning then this is the one you should try. It is so simple and empowering. Knowing that it is so easy to put together a seasoning will make you want to try more recipes.

So how to make taco seasoning you ask? Well watch the video and right below the video I've included the directions.

Search HowToExpo for your favorite seasoning recipes for any season. If you do not find the seasoning you want then drop us a line and we'll send a request to our participating home cooks to write create a recipe page. If you are an expert in home cooking and would like to start submitting and getting involved in the forum etc do send the moderator a line moderator at HowToExpo dot com.

As I have always put together recipes that I love I can't just write any recipe and post it that's why I'm not able to post many recipes. I have to test it first and make some changes to it before posting it. As I was chatting with the moderator about this we got an idea to have recipe testers.

So we're looking for someone who can recommend recipes that they've actually tried and we'll post it. Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated. It is not a job opening but rather a fun past time for the right person.  

Making your own spice seasonings is fun and great, and you can always experiment and make the perfect seasoning blend that is perfect for you!  Also great for those who want to know exactly what is in there spice seasoning, as well as for those who are on low sodium diets, as they can completely take out the salt in the recipe.  Or perhaps for those who do not like to much cayenne pepper or heat in there taco seasoning. You can also reduce the amount or if you like it hotter, then add some more.    The sky is the limit. 

It is also a great way to make large batches of these, and give away as gifts for special days. Actually you can make a series of different spice blends and it will a great gift idea, especially for those who love to cook.  Or better yet, treat yourself, and enjoy all our spice blends here on HowToExpo.com.

Can be used on chicken, beef, fish, and vegetables.  

As we get closer to the end of the year I would say have a fun Mexican Fiesta every day and make sure that you give this Taco Seasoning Recipe a try.
