I love homemade anything. Same goes with taco seasoning! I never bought it when we first got married because it didn’t fit our student budget. One day I had tortillas at a friend’s house, seasoned with taco meat seasoning… oh! It tasted like heaven compared to plain old ground beef thrown in a tortilla. 😉

Then I noticed that MSG triggers some of my frequent headaches/migraines, and most taco seasonings in the store contain MSG. Thankfully, I found a homemade recipe for taco seasoning that I love!

I mix up this batch, put it in a labelled container and it’s as easy to use as an envelope of store-bought taco seasoning! Yum!

Try it out in the above pictured Taco Lettuce Wrap! Yum!

Taco Meat Seasoning

1 1/2 Tbsp corn starch
4 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tsp dry minced onion
1/2 tsp beef bouillon powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper

Mix all ingredients together. When ready to use, sprinkle some to taste on top of cooked ground beef, add a little bit of water, simmer until most of the liquid has cooked away. You’ll be left with a slightly ‘saucey’ taco meat!
