DIY Taco Seasoning

I don’t buy the packets of taco seasoning any more. Sometimes I will make a big batch of the taco seasoning, normally I just make it as I need it. If you like yours hot, at some cayenne pepper to it. I like to make mine with smoked paprika. If you don’t like that flavor, just used regular paprika.

I put this in all of my taco flavored meals, even a small sprinkle into my dressing I made with salsa and ranch. I use this on my sheet pan fajitas too.
