I’ve been making my own Taco Seasoning for years, but lately I’ve started filling my pantry with all of my favorite seasoning blends.

I love keeping French Onion Dip Mix and Ranch Seasoning Mix on hand to easily make my own dips! I always use homemade Fajita Seasoning and Chili Seasoning to spice up my fajitas and chili recipes.  And I always have my own Pumpkin Pie Spice in the pantry during the fall and winter months!

The taco seasoning is perfect in this easy Crock Pot Taco Soup. And the French Onion Dip Mix makes the most delicious Instant Pot French Onion Pot Roast.

The Pumpkin Pie Spice is a wonderful addition to this Apple Crumble recipe. And Italian seasoning is great for adding to pasta sauces, roasted veggies and lots of authentic Italian recipes.
