Christmas in July – Homemade Taco Seasoning

For my second gift idea this week, I went with a simple gift. Remember those crockpot chicken tacos I made last summer? With the homemade taco seasoning? Hubby and I love that taco seasoning. We use it anywhere you would normally use a packet of store-bought taco seasoning. We love it so much we thought it would be great to share with our family and friends.

So we mixed up a VERY large batch of the seasoning. I ordered some cute little jars and again put labels on them including instructions of how to make the taco seasoning when people ran out. I saved the label files if anyone is interested in them. Just shoot me an email.

    Making your own cheez-it’s looks so fun and not too difficult! I love how easy it is to customize your own flavors. I’m thinking white cheddar and ranch!

      White cheddar and ranch sounds like a great combination. I agree, they’re so simple and I love customizing them.
