Love cooking with seasoning blends & packets? 🍴

They can be such a convenient and delicious way to flavor food when cooking and grilling. Here’s how to easily re-create five popular store bought seasoning mixes at home that’ll have you preparing yummy meals and saving money at the same time!

1.) Homemade Taco Seasoning

Make a large batch of this delicious Homemade Taco Seasoning to use in many different dishes besides tacos! Some of my favorite ideas include, Ranch Taco Soup, Chicken Rice Burrito Bowls, Plantain Nachos, Healthy Taco Salad, and Weeknight Red Enchiladas. YUM!

2.) Homemade Ranch Seasoning

Not only can you make salad dressing with this Homemade Ranch Seasoning, try making some tasty Ranch Mashed Potatoes, Slow Cooker Shredded Buffalo Chicken, and Ranch Taco Soup.

3.) Smoky & Sweet BBQ Rub

This recipe is my favorite to use on homemade BBQ ribs, and of course can be used to season  chicken or other BBQ meat. It’s super flavorful and delicious!

4.) Zesty Italian Dressing and Seasoning

This recipe can make a yummy salad dressing and also works well as a convenient way to cook Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken, 5 Ingredient Italian Chicken Bake, and Zesty Italian Pasta Salad.

5.) Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix

Onion soup mix is probably the most versatile seasoning packet that can be used in a wide variety of dishes including grilling Best Ever Juicy Burgers, and cooking Onion Roasted Potatoes, Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast, Slow Cooker Smothered Pork Chops, and Creamy Blue Cheese and Onion Dip.

    I take the good seasonings zesty Italian mix it with butter and then toss over sliced squash or zucchini in a foil pack. Put the foil pack on the grill until tender. My kids love most veggies but squash and zucchini scarf it down. This works with other dressings/flavors and veggies as well, even in the oven, but grilling is my favorite.
