It's so easy to make your own taco seasoning mix that once you get started you'll never consider buying the supermarket brands again! Use this spice mix in exactly the same way as the store-bought varieties, e.g. sprinkle over beef, chicken or veggies during cooking (1 - 2 tbsp/500g of ingredients) or use as a spice rub before grilling.
