A Homemade Recipe For Taco Seasoning -
Hot and Spicy, Great For Chicken Filled Wraps

If you're into making various homemade tacos, I think making your own mix is definitely worthwhile. And this recipe for taco seasoning is just the one for your chicken fillings. That's the beauty of creating your own, you can tailor each blend to whatever filling you're planning on making.

Note: This mix uses whole cumin which are then ground. If you only have pre-ground, use that and reduce the quantity the recipe says by half. So for 2 tablespoons of cumin seeds you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground. Reduce the peppercorns and fennel by half as well if you don't have whole.
