No Sugar Low Carb Taco Seasoning

I have not bought taco seasoning in 5 years….and this recipe is the reason why!

Store bought taco seasoning generally contains a lot of sugars and preservative chemicals.  Beyond that, in my opinion, homemade taco seasoning tastes so much better.

1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt

This makes about 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning.  For pan frying taco meat, brown the meat and then drain it.  Use 3 tablespoons of this mix per pound of meat and 2/3 cup of water.  Mix well and let simmer in a pan until water is reduced.
