For awhile now I’ve been trying to cut processed sugar out of my diet. It was really eye opening when I started looking for sugar and found it in places I never would have thought of. Things like canned tomatoes, canned chick peas, chicken broth, taco seasoning, etc. I realized quickly that if I still wanted to enjoy certain foods I was going to have to make them at home. I have come up with a few recipes that I like and use often and I am frequently trying to come up with refined sugar free substitutes for some of our favorite foods. The only problem is that most of my recipes look like this…
My chicken scratch on scratch paper that Baby B wrote on with a pencil. So, I decided I needed a better place to keep them and I might as well share them with you. Today the lucky winner is Taco seasoning. I used to buy the big jar of McCormick from Costco but alas, it has sugar in it. I’ve tried several recipes that I found online but none of them tasted like what we were used to. So, I made up my own using the list of ingredients on the McCormick bottle. I think it tastes pretty similar and will most likely be the only thing I use now.
1 Tbl chili powder
1 teas cumin
1 teas onion powder
1 teas garlic salt
3/4 teas paprika
1/2 teas oregano
Mix it all together and use it how you use any other taco seasoning. I actually kept my empty McCormick jar and tripled this recipe then mixed it all up in the jar. It is so easy and almost as quick as buying taco seasoning from the store.
