Taco Seasoning

There are plenty of homemade Taco Seasoning combinations out there. I tried a few and they just didn’t seem to be as good as the pre-mixed versions of my pre-GF days. So, I kept on merging and adjusting and this one is a keeper.

Use this as the base recipe but have fun with adjustments—it makes the end result interesting.

1 1/2 tablespoons corn flour
3 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons The Spice Hunter Chili Powder Blend
1 1/2 teaspoons dried onion
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (see update below)

Mix all ingredients together.

This is enough for 1 to 1½ pounds of ground meat (I use ground turkey).

Once the meat is browned, sprinkle the spice mix over top and stir in until it’s fully incorporated. Then add a cup of water and continue to cook over a medium heat until the sauce is reduced and thickened. Serve with your favorite GF taco shells and other toppings.

Adjust the cayenne pepper to achieve your desired level of spiciness.

I love The Spice Hunter Chili Powder Blend. Checked the website and it’s GF. But, here’s the link so you can read for yourself. Also, if you can’t get it omit it entirely or omit it and add ¼ teaspoon each of cocoa powder, cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.
