Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix
My biggest tip is to sprinkle the seasoning over the meat almost like a rub before you brown it. The heat of the skillet helps release the flavor of dry seasonings. You can also dry toast spice mix by adding them to the pan first. Or even add a little bit of oil to slightly fry the mix. All of these are going to give you a more developed flavor rather than adding it to cooked meat. You can also add a dash of this seasoning mix to pinto or black beans for a bump in taste.
Once you get this easy Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix recipe down pat, then you can focus on other easy-to-make seasoning mixes. A few suggestions are a spice rub good for pork, or maybe a lemon pepper mix. Just lay around with your favorite flavors and have fun!
