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.

    Very cool (pun intended)! I’ll have to bookmark this recipe in case I have some friends who can’t consume dairy.

      Coconut milk is definitely my friend when it comes to dairy free ice cream!

    I love vanilla ice cream that’s so vanilla-y that it has the little flecks in it 🙂 Heavenly!

    How convienent that I just paid $6 for a tiny container of dairy free ice cream and wanted to find a cheaper homemade version. Thanks for sharing this gem.

      Dairy free ice cream is definitely expensive and making it at home yields such great results! I don’t think I’ll ever go back to store bought ice cream again.
