“So I'm into homemade. Homemade Taco Seasoning, specifically. Mostly because it's better for you. You have control of what goes into your meals and your body. You decide how it will ultimately taste by adding a little of this or that to the meal. But also because it's cheaper. MUCH cheaper. Take taco seasoning for example. One of the little packets from the store costs are $1, maybe $0.50 when on sale. It's about 2 tablespoons worth of taco seasoning...about enough for 1-2 pounds of meat or chicken. I recently purchased spice bottle for $1.38 each. (Similar spices are also on sale at CVS for $0.88 every now and again.) So I made up what will probably be enough taco seasoning for the entire year for somewhere between $5 and $6! use this homemade taco seasoning...So here's my "ratio recipe"...”
