Taco Seasoning Mix Recipe

This taco seasoning mix recipe is so quick and easy to put together and tastes go good, you won’t want to buy the little packages again.

A while ago I was craving tacos. I hadn’t purchased taco seasoning for a long time and what I discovered was that, for some reason, the packaged seasoning mix made me ill. I decided that from now on I will just make my own. It’s easy and it is healthier, because you know what is in it and you know it contains no preservatives or other strange ingredients.

This taco seasoning mix is gluten free and low carb. You can use it to season tacos or grilled chicken, even grilled vegetables. It also fits in with our diabetic recipes very well.
