Many people buy ready-made taco powder in the store, but it is easy to make your own. It tastes better, has less salt and no weird e-substances. Try a little until you find the perfect spice mixture for you. Store in an airtight jam jar and feel free to make a large portion so you have homemade taco seasoning for a long time to come. This is a very good starting point and the one I use at home.
