Homemade Taco Seasoning

IMG_3924

As you all may or may not have noticed, I like to put together my own seasonings and rubs. I find that not only is it more thriftier, but it is also more convenient because you know how much you normally use within the time span of a month and make however much you need!

That being said, it came to my attention that I only have ONE crock pot/slow cooker meal on my whole blog so in a nutshell, I am slacking on my diversity once again and need to shake things up a bit! XD

I decided to make crock pot tacos and what goes hand in hand with tacos? You guessed it, TACO SEASONING!!!!! ::YAY:: I found this recipe from Rachel Cooks at http://www.rachelcooks.com/2013/03/25/homemade-taco-seasoning-large-batch/

I used my trusty electric hand blender to pulse the ingredients together, further breaking the larger pepper flakes and oregano down a bit.

The author suggests that when using, add 2-3 Tbsp seasoning + 1/2 Cup water to ONE pound of cooked meat. Simmer over medium heat stirring frequently until very little liquid is left in the pan.
