How to make taco seasoning
Taco Seasoning is extremely popular Worldwide for building the best tacos.
What is best about this taco seasoning is the Gourmet Chili powder which uses very little salt. That means you get fresh homemade taco seasoning with by using very little salt.
For my personal Taco Seasoning combine the following:
- 1 tablespoon Gourmet Smoked Chili Powder
- ¼ teaspoon Hellfire Habenero
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt (optional)
- Zest of 1 lime
So minus the lime, you can store this taco seasoning for a long time and use it in so many places.
OK, so let’s continue here and I’ll show you how to make your tacos with my awesome seasoning.
Combine the dry ingredients with the juice of two limes and 2 tablespoons white vinegar.
Whisk until combined.
Chop the following:
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 small bunch cilantro (optional)
- ½ to 1 white or yellow onion.
In 12 to 14 in. sauté pan add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sweat the veggies over medium heat until they just turn soft.
Add 1 to 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef, turn up the heat to medium high.
Add the chili fixings and stir gently to break up the meat and combine the amazing flavor of the smoked chili powders.
Sip the beer as you stir the taco fixings every few moments until meat is completely cooked 170 to 180 degrees F.
Turn off the heat and star warming the tortillas.
From here it up to you:
Shredded cheese, salsa, shredded lettuce, sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and cilantro, whatever make you happy.
BTW, this works with ground turkey or chicken also. Just add a bit more oil to the pan when you start sweating the veggies.
