With all of those pre-made mixes out there that tend to have one too many ingredients, I decided to make my own taco seasoning. Not only do I know it is gluten free, but I know I'm not eating other unnecessary preservatives, additives and flavor enhancers (MSG) that can be in these seasoning packets, not to mention hidden gluten. Some companies won't tell you if their products have been manufactured on the same equipment that also processes wheat or other glutens. Ugh.
So here is an easy recipe that tastes great with steak, chicken or hamburger meat. Or if you like, sprinkle on fajita veggies while cooking and put on top of some refried beans in a taco shell.
1 Tablespoon Chile Powder
1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or red chili flakes (add more depending on level of spice you prefer)
2 teaspoons cumin
1 3/4 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt (prefer sea salt)
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
