Homemade Taco Seasoning!

WOAH! This has certainly been a busy month!

With my late work hours and busy weekends preparing for Yom Tov, I’ve grown to love (again!) my crockpot. At least twice a week it gets used – chicken and rice, split pea soup and a new recipe from my “Twitter” friend, Caroline – Taco Soup! I’ll post another recipe for that another time, but it does call for a pack of Taco Seasoning. Has anyone else ever noticed the sodium count on those! Oh Boy!

On a mission to find a healthier version, here is the recipe I came up with.
