Why DIY Taco Seasoning?
Packets of Taco Seasoning are easily available in the market but there is nothing like making your own at home.
Making DIY Taco Seasoning gives you much flexibility to control the quantity and quality of the ingredients used and it is much cheaper to make a big batch at home rather than buying it out.
You can increase or decrease the quantity of salt and chilli according to your taste.
I don’t add cornflour in my seasoning which is almost always there in the store bought packets. They add it to thicken the tacos, but I prefer to add cornflour separately if required.
Making things from scratch gives so much satisfaction that is not comparable.
