Recipe: Taco Salad with Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix

Taco Salad FEATURED PHOTO from Walking on Sunshine Recipes

One of the most easiest recipes I make that everyone in my family enjoys is tacos.  And another way to enjoy tacos is with a Taco Salad.  

Making a taco salad is so easy.  Just serve the delicious seasoned ground beef over a big salad with crushed tortilla chips on top.  Sometimes I'll even make sure I make extra taco meat so I can enjoy salads for lunch during the week.  

I started making my own homemade taco seasoning mix ages ago and it's so much better for you than the store bought packets, but if that's what you have on hand, do not let that stop you from enjoying Taco Tuesday with your family! 

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Make sure you print out the recipe for the homemade taco seasoning at the bottom of the post! 
I mix the above ingredients together and store in a mason jar.

How to Use the Homemade Taco Seasoning

After browning the meat, add two to three tablespoons of the seasoning mix and  
1/4 cup of water.  Simmer until the meat is cooked all the way through.
