Introduction: Home Made Taco Seasoning Mix

About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

Have you ever heard that New Mexico has the best tasting Mexican food in the US? Do you know which US state produces the most chile peppers? Yep you guessed correctly! The hot dry climate of New Mexico is perfect for growing plump delicious chile peppers.
