  1. these are so useful – i started making my own taco seasoning a couple years ago and haven’t looked back. I’ll have to pin this and start making more blends 🙂

  2. I love making my own spice mixes like this. I never use premade taco seasoning or sloppy joe mixes. They put so many other things in them!!

  3. Candy, you are a fountain of knowledge! Thank you for sharing your kitchen secrets with us. I love that you’ve broken down how to blend spices together to create fabulous seasoning mixes. I especially love your Hidden Valley Ranch Mix. 🙂

  5. Whoo! For a second I was having deja vu and thought I had commented already! Thank you for sharing your mixes. I’ll be considering these for my pantry.

    1. All natural ingredients and fresh taste. You won’t go back to that awful packaged stuff. Thanks for commenting.

  6. I love to make my own soup and spice mixes. I’ve never made one specifically for sloppy joes, so I look forward to trying your recipe.

  7. These would be really handy around our house. We are forever making tacos, soups and chili and we always have to buy the spice mixes to put in them. It would be nice to have them always on hand.

  8. Thank you for sharing! I love home made mixes, but never know what to put in them. I only get to try everyone else’s. Now I can make my own:)

  9. I have never thought to pre-make my own seasonings before. This is a great idea and I am going to be make a few of these seasoning mixes. Thanks for sharing these awesome homemade seaoning recipes.

  10. I’ve been wanting to do this so that we can cut out some preservatives in our diet. Thanks for sharing these recipes at the Family Joy Blog Link Party this week!!

    1. What is so nice is you can add more or less of something depending on what your family enjoys. Thanks for commenting.

  11. I really need to start making my own seasonings. I have done the taco seasoning on my own before when I realized I didn’t have any.

  12. I definitely love the idea of making your own mixes for cooking. You know all the ingredients that went into it, plus you have a good stock at home in case you’re craving for something! Saves time and money too.

  13. I think my reason would be for freshness, fewer preservatives. I would make the ranch and taco mixes first – they are fast and furiously used at my house. Thanks so much for these recipes!

  14. I do love to try new seasoning with my meals, so I was wondering as a vegetarian what seasonings, aside from the veggie dip would you recommend I use from the list above? For example I love cuisine like Thai and Indian, what seasonings would work best?
