Here are five reasons why you should make your own taco seasoning (or any seasoning for that matter!):
1. It tastes better and is better for you (no funky additives or preservatives).
2. The spices are fresher which means they are richer in flavor and aroma.
3. It is cheaper than buying single serving seasoning packets.
4. You can use the taco seasoning for other dishes like chili.
5. You can customize your own blend to match your preferences.
