I always love to eat tacos and fajitas but the taco seasoning kits like Old El Paso contain soybean oil, corn flour and corn starch. I try to avoid starches, especially from corn or potatoes, starchy vegetables and soybean oil. Making your own paleo taco seasoning takes no time at all and can be used over and over! I like to make a big batch and put it in a jar so that I can just grab a couple of tablespoons and add it to my meat and veggies for a quick dinner!
This recipe isn’t hard at all, you just need to mix together some spices you probably already have in your pantry. The amount of the mix you add in your dishes is completely up to you, but the more you add the more intense the flavour will be! I also usually add some water right after I added the spices because this way the spices get to really get absorbed by the meat. I usually start with 1 tablespoon, taste, and add more if needed.
If you count carbs and calories, just remember that spices do have carbs! If you’re doing a keto diet, just make sure you always count the amount of spices you’re adding because the carbs will add up! I added the nutritional value at the end of the page so you can see how many carbs 1 tablespoon has.
Paleo Taco Seasoning
Mix all of the spices together in a small bowl and add to an air-tight jar or tupperware. It will keep for months!
