Are tacos a staple at your house? Well, they are at mine. In case you haven’t heard, mom makes the best tacos in town. That is what my little boys will tell you. I am sure my husband will agree! I like my taco seasoning recipe because it saves me money in the long run, and I can make it taste how I want it to.

The secret to making good tacos is in the seasoning, and how much seasoning you put in the meat. I put double the amount of seasoning that a packet would call for. That’s right I double up on the amazing flavor why not right?

What’s a Taco Without Toppings?

Toppings, toppings, toppings. Toppings not only help you use less of the expensive meat but they add so much depth and flavor to a taco.

Our favorite toppings are lettuce, cheese, diced tomatoes, and sour cream. We also like to add some refried pinto beans as a filler. We try to make frugal meals that are also blasted with flavor.

  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream
  • Refried Beans
  • Cheese
  • Hot Sauce
  • Taco Sauce

Why Make Your Own Spice Blends?

Why make your own spice blends? Some spice blends contain additives, anti-caking agents, allergens, and MSG. Knowing what is in our food is really important to our health.

Buy good quality ingredients, mix your own blends, and avoid those additives! Or check out some posts below on how to grow your own spices and herbs and make them from scratch!
