Creating your own Easy Taco Seasoning is simple and requires ingredients you likely already have in your pantry.

Once upon a time I was a frequent purchaser of those taco seasoning envelopes you can find in the grocery store. That changed when I realized how simple it is to make your own. Plus when you do it yourself you get to eliminate the unnecessary ingredients that are often included in the pre-packaged kind like sugar, canola oil, and silicon dioxide.

I make a large batch by quadrupling what this recipe calls for. I store it in an empty seasoning jar so I always have some on hand.

This seasoning is delicious on chicken, steak, potatoes, or in soups.

One of my favorite ways to use it is as a wet rub. To create a wet rub for chicken simply stir your seasoning together with 1 – 2 tablespoons olive oil and pat on the outside of chicken. Your chicken will get nice and blackened as it grills.

Note: This seasoning is enough for approximately 4 chicken breasts if you like to thoroughly coat yours (and I do).
