This recipe uses taco seasoning mix which is SUPER EASY to make yourself. You probably have all of the ingredients already in your pantry. Making your own spice mixes makes sure you are using high quality, non-irradiated spices and no preservatives, added sugars, or excess sodium. I keep a jar of this mix in my cabinet at all times!
