miller-150x150Kristin Miller is joining us on the blog today … offering us a quick and natural alternative to packaged taco seasoning. Happy Cooking!!

We have been making lots of dishes lately calling for “Taco Seasoning”
I looked up the ingredients for the pre-made packets (Packaged Mix Ingredients) I used to buy: Spices (Including Chili Pepper, Cumin, Paprika, Oregano), Onion, Whey (Milk), Salt, Garlic, Sugar, Potato Starch, And Natural Flavor.
Why is there added milk, sugar, potato starch, and natural flavor (whatever that means 🙁 )?
Now, I use 4 ingredients right from my spice cabinet to make my seasoning …
For every 1 lb of meat:
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cumin
  • 1 ½ teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
