We found a sure fire way to get anyone you know to spill their guts and darkest secrets with this sweet concoction made from the fruity and boozy goodness leftover from our family Brandied Fruit Cake. But thankfully over Christmas I didn’t need to invoke the sweet nectar to get my mom to give up all our family favorite recipes… like we do with other members of our family. She gave them all up willingly, and I snapped up every single one I could, including this homemade taco seasoning. It’s the same one I used in yesterday’s Taco Pull Apart Bread recipe and video!
The ingredients are simple, whole, and preservative free. Mix and match the ingredients to suit your taste. But this is a great jumping off point for your own version if you choose.
I think next time it would be really perfect with a little chipotle for that smoky flavor if you’re interested. Tricky, tricky!
And don’t be alarmed by the amount of dried minced onion, it’s totally not over powering or anything when you get it in the mix. Trust me.
The ingredients list includes dried minced onion, oregano, powdered garlic, cumin, chili pepper, onion salt, beef boullion, and corn starch for a little thickening to the sauce.
Pretty simple, right? Next, just mix it all together and BAM! Donezo!
I multiplied this recipe several times to make a hearty batch to always have on hand. Store it in a air tight mason jar, in your cupboard. See what you think next Taco Tuesday, or whenever you need to make a little Taco Pull Apart Bread. So, like tomorrow? Yeah, tomorrow is good.
