Tacos are one of our family’s all-time favorite meals. These days we opt for a lower-carb, Keto-friendly version in the form of Taco Bowls. I’ve never been a fan of taco seasoning packets - they’re too salty and often contain hidden carbs that just aren’t necessary, so I like to make my own. Here’s a simple low-carb version you can mix up in a matter of minutes.
Items used to make this recipe:
Keto-Friendly Taco Seasoning
makes enough for 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of beef
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
1/4 teaspoon granulated onion (or onion powder)
optional: 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
Combine all ingredients together.
To use: Cook 1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef in a skillet until cooked through, stirring frequently to break up clumps; add seasoning mix plus 1/4 cup of water and continue cooking and stirring for 2 minutes.
