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.

    These look super, and like something I might could do! I was thinking of making some gyros lately, if I do this will have to go along with it.

    Mmm, these look great. I’ve made the homemade pita recipe in Vefa’s Kitchen a few times. Instead of baking them in the oven, you pan-fry them. So addictive!

    I’ve made pita bread before but always a failure. They are so hard like stone! I’m inspired again to make this over the weekend, follow your recipe and see what happens. Wish me luck 🙂

    I made these this morning and YUM! they are so good. Mine have performance issues though and only one puffed up for me..lol I think I know what the problem is now. I was rolling them out way to much. They are so good though. Thanks for the recipe!

    I have not tried these yet but I have made a lot of homemade bread over the years. These look delicious and I’m going to get my daughter to make these with me. There really is nothing better than a sandwich on good pita bread!

    These looks super. I love how you got them to be so plain colored. We have them like this back home in Cairo sometimes but ours are a little darker because of using mostly whole wheat flour. I made pita bread recently as well and have to admit it was one of the more fun things I’ve done recently. 🙂

    Home made pita….. How dangerous is that?!?!?! I dont think i would be able to stop making them. I am middle eastern and my husband is Greek so this would probably be the best and most used recipe for us…. Lovely and seems very easy.

    These are my absolute favorite! I make them many times during the year, but they have become a New Year’s Day tradition. I make hummus out of black eyed peas and serve with your pitas. Thanks for the recipe!
