How to Store It

There are three things you need to avoid when storing any of your spices:

  1. AIR
  2. LIGHT
  3. HEAT

So store your homemade taco seasoning in a covered jar or another airtight container, tucked in a cupboard away from direct light and heat. Too much direct light and heat will alter the flavor and cause it to get hard or lumpy. No Bueno!

How Long Does Low Carb Taco Seasoning Last?

Keto Taco Seasoning will keep for about 6 months to a year if you keep it properly stored. Just to be safe, use a marker to write the date you prepared it so you’ll remember when to make a fresh batch…that is unless it isn’t it already used up first!
