No Sugar Homemade Taco Seasoning

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by TheDancingCook

I use this blend when seasoning for chicken or beef is called for in Mexican-style recipes for my South Beach sugar, flour or cornstarch to be found in this recipe. It's not too spicy; if you want a bit more of a "kick", you may want to add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. This recipe makes 2Tbsp plus 1 1/2 tsp of seasoning.

This is a great starter base, however I think it needed to be more spicy so I added 1/4 tsp (approx.) of ground cayenne pepper. I also added some dried minced onion as well. One batch seasoned 2 lbs. of ground beef. To this I added about 2 cups of water and about 3 Tbsp. of cornstarch as a thickener. Simmered it for a few minutes over low heat, tastes better than store bought. Thanks for posting.
