It's so easy to make your own taco seasoning mix and tastes so much better that premixes.

My husband is very salt sensitive and diabetic. Many of the taco seasoning packets found in the store contain sugar and lots of salt. Many also contain a thickening agent (usually corn starch) that just adds calories and is not really necessary. Mix this homemade version up ahead to use instead for healthier Mexican-style food.

About 2 Tbsp. equals 1 regular packet for seasoning power. Use 1 Tbsp. for a milder flavor.

Be sure to read the label on your chili powder. It is a combination of spices. Most do not contain salt or sugar, but some might.

If you like the little chunks of onion or garlic in your seasoning, use dried, minced onion or garlic instead of the granulated or powdered version. You will need about twice as much as the amounts listed and it will change the nutritional information slightly.

A great substitute for canned cream soups
Add mushrooms for cream of mushroom soup, peas for cream of peas or even spinach. I like it just as it is or add vegetables or meat as you llike.

This saves a lot of money & is a lot healthier than prepared "just add water" mixes. It is so simple to make ahead, you will never go back to those boxed mixes!! I haven't!!
