Taco Seasoning

Who doesn’t love Mexican night in their house?!?  It happens to be my favorite- Taco Tuesday’s! Taco seasoning, however, contains a lot of added sugars, salt, and extras that you should not want to out in your body- that causes the extra bloat and gas.  A few years ago a friend of mine sent me a homemade taco seasoning recipe that I have been using ever since!  It tastes so much better than the already made seasoning, and it is 100 times better for you and your body!

So easy, so delicious, so tasty!  Try it out for your next taco night!

I use it so much, I taped the recipe on the door to my spice cabinet!

Recipe-

1 Tablespoon Chili Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano

1/2 Teaspoon Paprika

1 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin- I sometimes add a bit more for extra spice

Optional-

1 Teaspoon salt- which I do not typically use

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper- which I do use, but it will add an extra spice to the flavor, so I recommend adding only if you like spicier foods.

 

Using one package of lean Turkey meat (or Beef if that’s what you prefer)-  Brown and separate meat over medium-low heat.  Drain once cooked.  Place meat back in pan, add 2/3 cup water and add seasoning. mix together covering all meat with seasoning.  Turn heat on medium-high.  once boiling, return heat to low and let simmer until water is dissolved.  Place in bowl and serve with hard or soft taco shells and toppings of your choice!

When you make your own foods, you know exactly what is going in your body, and for that your body will thank you!
