1 teaspoon of Black Pepper
¼ teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper

Can you make this taco seasoning ahead of time?
Of course. In fact, it’s probably better if you do. The hardest part about making this taco seasoning is that you have to mix it all together and measure it out. Not that hard at all, right?
So if you have the chance to make it ahead of time, do so! Then you’ll be able to use it as you need to when you’re wanting to add it to a recipe or two.
Do you have to store this seasoning in the fridge or where do I store it?
Nope! You do not have to store this in a fridge. That’s not really a cool, dark place. That is a cold place. Not to mention that each and every time you open the fridge, remove the spices, you are causing the spice to have to adjust to the temperature again. Cold to warmer, cold to warmer. Not ideal. The condensation from taking spices in and out of the fridge can cause mold! Not good!
Also, do not just store and toss in the cabinet above the stove. That’s probably one of the WORST places to store spices. Why? Because of the constant heat from the stove. Spices do best stored around 70 degrees. Most houses in general have their heat or AC set constant around this temperature.

Can you freeze this homemade taco seasoning?
Yes, you can. If you do so, freeze in small envelopes so that you have less condensation as the spice returns to room temperature. Personally, I would not freeze this, even though you probably could. Here’s why- Since it literally only takes about five minutes to make, you can whip it up in a jiffy without any issues or worries. And if you’re worried that you’re going to have too much left over to use it all within the 15 days, why not gift some to your friends, family members or neighbors? Just add the extra into a nice little mason jar, tie a ribbon on it and give it to them so they can use it up as well.
Make certain that you also include a copy of the recipe because they’re going to love it just as much as you.
It’s time to take charge of your homemade seasoning game and give this recipe a try. You’ll love the ease of it and the flavor is just as delicious. Anytime you can make something homemade versus buying it at the store is always a great idea!
There’s something amazing knowing each and every ingredient in the item that you’re cooking with, isn’t there? Plus, homemade just always tend to taste better! Trust me on this one, your taste buds will thank you!
