This is the spice mix from a taco recipe that I got from Redbook's Wise Woman's Diet Cookbook. Whenever I have a recipe that calls for a package of taco seasoning mix, this is what I use. The great thing about it is that it has no MSG or preservatives. *Update* This recipe is equal to one packet of taco seasoning mix -- enough to season one pound of ground meat.
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cumin
- Mix together and use in place of a package of taco seasoning mix.
very good mix, i used this as the base because i like to add cumin to my taco seasoning, and absolutely loved the cinnamon in it
I enjoy cinnamon in my chili and my chocolate, so I thought I would give this a shot. I did like the flavor, but I missed the "taco" taste I am used to that comes from a packet. I did like that this only has three carbs per serving with no preservatives, msg, or artificial flavors. I will be trying a few other recipes though in search of the "taco" taste I want.
I disliked the cinnamon flavor. I thought it would be interesting, yet it did not work for me.
