Recipe

Mixing it up

The other night I found myself with all of the makings for tacos, except for a packet of taco seasoning.  Ugh!  No way was I going back to the grocery store for one ingredient.  I searched the web, and found this delicious alternative…and the plus side?  Yep, I had all of the ingredients right in my spice cupboard.  I decided to look up other spice mixes that I can keep on hand to jazz up dinners and found some other fine ones.  Try one tonight!
