Why spend $1.79 on a package of taco seasoning that you can make yourself? Now, you will have to be okay with separating yourself from fun ingredients like msg, but it is worth it to be able to make tacos at home on a whim.

We use this recipe regularly to make taco meat for tacos and taco salads. It’s better with beef, but healthier with turkey.
