Materials List

  • Salsa (try this 3 minute salsa recipe)
  • Card Stock
  • Printer
  • Marker
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

  1. Start by printing the gift tag onto card stock and trimming to size with scissors. Decorate with stickers if desired.

  2. Fill one of the jars with homemade taco seasoning. 

  3. 6 tsp chili powder 5 tsp paprika 4 1/2 tsp ground cumin 2 1/2 tsp onion powder 2 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

I love the mason-jar taco-kit recipes. These are so cool, and super easy to put together for a gift, no matter who it's for. I like to use this idea for the holidays to give handmade cocoa mix kits, gifts for coffee lovers, the taco seasoning gifts, and even baked goods in a jar and stuff. Such a super cool and nifty idea, and my kids love it, too!

This is a great idea for a housewarming gift. My father in law gave me an amazing salsa recipe that would be perfect to bundle with some taco seasoning in this DIY. I think that it would be cute to include a little recipe card with the recipes for the salsa and seasoning so the recipient could make it again if they want. You can really customize the look by putting it in a cute basket and adding some pretty ribbons around the jars. This would be a welcomed gift for sure.

this is such a fun and unique idea for a gift. I love that it could be given any time of year, for anyone you know who likes tacos. You could give it with a bag of nacho chips, or a jar of homemade salsa, if you are a gardener/canner. Hey, I could make this and give it to myself, it's so clever!
