Who doesn’t like tacos? Well, I don’t like taco’s with ground beef, but I don’t count that. I just prefer ground turkey or chopped up chicken breasts. Heck, I even made it with ground chicken once which wasn’t bad, but I like to know what part of the beast I am eating and that left me feeling, a little dirty. This is super simple and spicy and so much better for you to have on hand then those prepackaged seasonings.
A few years ago we switched to the low sodium type but still had insane amounts of salt, so I have been looking for a homemade version. I made the original version which had way too much chili powder, and didn’t have that cumin & garlic taste I was looking for, and well.. needed salt. So, made a few changes and they are reflected below. Now, getting anyone in my family to try and eat heather, that is a challenge. I just hope one of them adapt this recipe and enjoy it. Yep, little brother I am looking at you.
- 3 tbsp chili powder (I used 1 tbsp chippole powder, and 2 tbsp smoked ancho chili powder)
- 3 tbsp plus smoked paprika
- 4 tbsp ground cumin
- 1 1/2 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Combine all in a airtight container, mix. Store.
When making taco’s use 2 tbsp’s per pound of meat. I love this for chicken tacos!
