I don't know how much it would cost in ingredients to make your own taco seasoning. I suppose if you make tacos a lot then making yourself could be worth it; however I really like the McCormick taco seasoning packet and I can get on sale. I'd just as soon buy that then spend my time making it. I was very interested in the Taco Bell seasoning recipe tho as I love the way their taco meat tastes!
