Keto Taco Seasoning
Have you ever picked up a package of pre-mixed taco seasoning and actually looked at the contents? For one, they are usually packed full of so much salt and sodium it would kill a slug instantly. Second, there are so many ingredients with names you cannot pronounce that you have no idea what you are even eating. When you are on a dietary plan such as the Keto diet pre-packaged anything can be a dangerous game.
Here’s a little secret. Making your own taco seasoning is easy to do, and chances are you have most of the components already in your spice cupboard. We have done you the favor of putting together an ideal ratio of spices that will put a little kick in your tacos, or just about anything you may want to have it on.
Make Plenty and Fill Up Those Spice Jars
The recipe we have provided offers a considerable portion for a few meals – dependent upon how many people you are feeding. But, the proportions below should be used more like a formula. By doubling, tripling, or maybe even vigupling (20x) the recipe you can have plenty of the mix around for any time you may need it.
The spices that make up this mix all last for a long time in a dry cupboard. You can absolutely make enough to last you a month or three. We all have a couple empty spice jars floating around our kitchens, so fill them up.
The 101 Uses For Taco Seasoning
Okay, okay, I am not actually going to list off a hundred and one dishes that this Keto taco seasoning would be great in. However, it is much more versatile than just using it for taco beef. There are many dishes that could use a zesty mix like this from soups to a Mexican style stir-fry. The options genuinely seem endless.
The best use I can think off though is to add some flavor to any protein that you are cooking up. Chicken breast, roast beef, seafood, all of them would taste amazing with this simple mixture. Again, I recommend making a more substantial portion of the seasoning to have around, you never know when it may come in handy for adding an extra kick to your dinners.
