Salt-Free Taco Seasoning

Salt-free taco seasoning is a super easy spice blend to keep on hand. Cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and more. This blend is easily customized and can be made more spicy or more mild as desired. Homemade taco seasoning can be kept in an airtight container for months and is a great preservative free substitution to store-bought taco seasoning.
