I love anything Mexican food…just ask my husband (insert husband eye roll here)!  If I don’t eat Mexican food once a week, I feel like I’ve lost an arm.  As a native Californian, it has been a part of my life since I was a wee taco.  I practically have salsa running through my veins.  Therefore, it is a MUST that I celebrate Cinco De Mayo all week long and in honor of this very momentous holiday, I will bring to you my favorite Mexican recipes including this one for my favorite Taco Seasoning.  It is a little spicy, smoky, sweet and perfect on everything from chicken (think fajitas),  veggies, scrambled eggs to Taco Hummus (say what?!) which I will be sharing later this week.  And the best part is that it keeps for months in an airtight container and can be made in one bowl in about 2 minutes.  It also makes a great gift too for teachers, moms, or anyone that loves Mexican food!

Let’s get this fiesta started!
