This is a recipe that I don't typically change around. Ground cumin and chili powder are the base of this recipe as long as they are in the mix, you can play around with other ingredients to come up with your own special blend.
Healthy taco seasoning tastes great on just about everything. Here are a few ways that we use it:
- ground beef, turkey or shredded chicken
- rub it onto boneless chicken breasts or pork chops before grilling
- sprinkle it on top of roasted or grilled veggies
- add it to a salad
- sprinkle it into scrambled eggs.
How to Store It
I like to make up a big batch of homemade taco seasoning and store it in an airtight container (a mason jar works well for this) and when it's time to use it, it's ready to go.
Taco spice blend will last for 6 to 8 months in your pantry.
