Gluten Free Taco Seasoning

If you're Celiac then you know that finding anything pre-packaged without added ingredients can be tough. Since it's easy to find Gluten Free taco shells we came up with this Taco Seasoning.

It's easy to mix up a batch and store it in sealed container for later. This is actually a quadruple recipe... but keep it around for a couple quick meals.

8 Tsp Chili Powder
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Onion Powder
1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tsp Powdered Oregano
2 Tsp Paprika
6 Tsp Ground Cumin
4 Tsp Sea Salt
4 Tsp Black Pepper

Directions: Mix and store. That's pretty much it.

Notes: Powdered Oregano will give you a consistency more like store bought but Oregano flakes work just as well.

Serving Suggestions:

Plain Jane Tacos - 1lb of ground beef or turkey browned and drained. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of water and 1 to 3 teaspoons of mix to taste. Serve with Taco Shells warmed in a 350° oven for three or four minutes and your favorite toppings. We like diced tomatoes and finely shredded cheese. Harry prefers the 'Kraft Mexican Cheese Blend', whereas I prefer a sharp Cheddar. In addition Harry spreads a little melted Velveeta on the shell whereas, I also add shredded lettuce when I have it available.

Cheesy Taco Dip - 1lb of ground beef or turkey browned and drained. 8oz of Velveeta. 1 or 2 teaspoons of mix. Lower the heat from browning and melt the cheese. Once it's melted you can microwave it for 20-30 seconds to avoid burning on the stove top. Serve with tortilla chips, we use scoop style here. If you like cheese, a finely shredded blend on top goes well.
