This super easy homemade Taco Seasoning will have you wondering why you ever bought the packaged stuff!
How do you feel when you come back from a vacation?
Do you feel completely refreshed and ready to go? Or do you find it very hard to come back to the real world?
Last week we were able to spend some time away and I have had a terrible time getting back in the swing of things. Of course going back to work wasn’t easy or particularly pleasant but that hasn’t been the only problem. I also kind of got used to going out to dinner and going for coffee every morning. It was just so nice. Unfortunately, there are no real choices here for gluten free dining so that is really not an option. And then there is the fact that, you know, I am a food blogger so I should probably start cooking dinner again.
So, I am trying to get my act together.
Of course, you have to kind of ease back into things after a trip, right? 😉 So my idea of cooking this week has been slow cooker soup, drumsticks, and loaded nachos. To justify barely cooking I made this really easy homemade taco seasoning.
This is super handy in case you forget to pick up a packet or if you find the store bought versions a bit too salty. Just mix up your spices, toss it in the skillet with cooked ground beef and a can of tomato with green chilies! You’re just 5 minutes away from easy, zesty, homemade taco meat!
