  1. Sounds delicious and I love the pic!

  2. thanks for the tip, i constantly buy taco seasoning but seperately already own all those spices :)

  3. I need a glass of water just READING that recipe! lol

  4. Ooh, I'm going to try this. My husband buys the packaged stuff from the store and I don't really care for it that much. This will give me a great start on something "homemade"!

  5. I bet that is good!!! I always just use cumin instead of taco seasoning. But I bet this is super good... and all things I have. I may have to whip up some homemade taco seasoning!

    Stopping by from SITS! Cute blog!

  6. So that is what makes up Taco Seasoning! I think I have all of that in my pantry...thanks for sharing!

  7. Ooooh...that made me mouth water!

  8. not sure WHY I haven't done this yet.....I make alot of other things from scratch. Thanks for the push!

  9. Looks good. I know the packaged stuff is really high in salt.

    I use this recipe for a Greek seasoning for pita wraps...yummy!
