Taco Seasoning

I love tacos.  I also love to make them in a jiffy.  In order to do that you need a seasoning that can be mixed with the ingredients to take on the flavor.  Taco seasoning makes making tacos a breeze.  I don’t buy it because many of the ingredients are not what I would want to eat, such as dairy whey and the white bone-refined white sugar. These are replaced by lactic or citric acid and organic cane sugar, which can both be consumed on a plant-based diet.

The taco seasoning recipe below is similar to McCormick’s Original Taco Seasoning.  I researched taco seasoning for a while and experimented with what tasted good to me.  I think you will like it too.

In this recipe, I made the things that most people do not have lying around optional, but especially for the lactic acid, which gives the recipe a bit of a sharp tart flavor.  If you miss the sweetness, you may add the tartness with a touch of vitamin C powder. The potato starch helps to bring the ingredients together.  Monk’s pepper (Chaste Berry Tree Tea) and papaya pepper are both great substitutes for the very acidic black pepper.  I blend all of the ingredients together in my Vitamix for a nice and somewhat powdery seasoning. Now, though there is a slight difference if you leave the optional ingredients, the main ingredients still taste great!

Without further ado, here is delicious taco seasoning recipe…
