DIY Taco Seasoning

DIY Taco Seasoning

Hi ya’all! So it’s Sunday. And preschool is officially over 😭🙀😬😩 I’m feeling many emotions about it as I’m sure you can feel just reading this lol. I’m happy, sad, excited, nervous, and straight up a bit overwhelmed with the thought of my first, precious little girl starting the journey of k-12. She is an amazingly smart, oh so sweet, tender little gal that wears her emotions on her face and sleeve and heart (whatever the expression is 🙆🏼🙈you know what I mean though, right?!). The tears poured out of this poor girl at her preschool graduation. And it was the sweetest, most heart breaking, most amazing thing to watch her push through those tears and sing the songs they’ve been practicing and walked and got her “diploma” but man was it painstakingly hard to watch😩. I just wanted to run up and hug her, but she loses it so much more when I console her, which I get (cuz I’m mom and she knows she can just let it gooooo let itttt goooo 🎶😂🙈🙊). But I didn’t🙅🏼 because she was pulling through👏🏼🙌🏼 (unless she looked at me 🙈then she welled back up😭), but I was just so amazingly impressed at how much my baby has grown up. And after the ceremony, she blossomed into her wonderful little confident self again 💪🏼 and we stayed for dinner and a pool party (not your usual preschool graduation, but it was such a fun time for the kids and parents tooooo, even though there were moments of oh my god I’m ready to goooo😬🙈).

So that’s where I’m at in life ☺️Now I need to figure out what the heck I’m going to do with my girls (5 yrs old & almost 2 yrs old) all 👏🏼summer👏🏼! But in the meantime, one thing I know that will always be apart of our summer is…

TACOS!

And I know, I know, tacos isn’t only a summer meal. My family, we eat tacos at least once a week (not kidding lol). Sometimes we’ll skip a week of taco noché, but you better believe we’ll eat it the next week.

I found my taco seasoning recipe on AllRecipes years ago. And it is THE best (seriously, so yummy🙌🏼). It IS spicy🔥🔥🔥so I’ve altered the recipe since we have 2 little ones that thoroughly enjoy taco noché 😋and since Marley can’t quite handle a taco shell yet, I make her a taco bowl 👌🏼I’m going to link the original recipe, here, and I’ll post my altered version ⬇️

DIY TACO SEASONING (altered version, toddler/kid friendly)

  • 1 TBSP chili powder
  • 1/2 TSP garlic powder
  • 1/2 TSP onion powder
  • 1/2 TSP oregano
  • 1/2 TSP smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 TSP ground cumin
  • 1 TSP salt
  • 1/2 TSP pepper

I usually quadruple this recipe and put it in a seasoning jar to get multiple uses out of it (instead of making it every single time, which I stupidly did for far too long and am so happy I keep this stuff in a jar now! I might have to start using a mason jar 😂😮🙌🏼 it’s that good!)
