Taco Seasoning in a pinch



 I was making tacos for a crowd and ran out of seasoning packets..now what?
I didn't have time to run back into town. I remember seeing a really cool picture of taco seasoning on Pinterest but did I pin it? No.

So I decided to google it and I found a recipe here. The reviews were all pretty good so I made some.
It was not only a life saver, but it tasted even better than the packets!

So I took a quick picture which is not as awesome as the one on Pinterest, but you get the idea! The only change I made was that I didn't have any onion powder so I added dried minced onion instead.

Problem solved... and I was able to serve my tacos!

{UPDATE... I found the cool photo of the taco seasoning here. The recipe is slightly different, though.
Check it out!}

haha...I always find myself searching for recipes on google at the last minute because I'm missing some ingredient ;) I've never used taco seasoning before (actually, I've never made tacos before!) but now I know where to look for a recipe if I ever need one!
