I love to make my own rubs and spices at home because sometimes the seasoning packets have unnecessary ingredients. Sometimes you can find a nice rub without the fluff, but for me it’s just easier to DIY my own.
Pair this with any of your favorite barbecue sauces. Here in Kansas City, we love our sauce including Gates BBQ and KC Masterpiece.

Can You Use it as a Dry Rub For Meat?
How to Store the Seasoning and Rub
If you are making a large batch of the Taco Seasoning, store it in an airtight container. I love to use these glass jars for storage. Ground spices usually last for 6 months. After that they will start to lose their flavor. I check this by giving the jar a whiff. If the smell is still potent it’s probably still good.
Whole spices will last up to 5 years.
