Tacos were my absolute favourite food growing up. However, it wasn't until I had finished 5 years of nutrition schooling/interning that I had taken the time to read the back of that little package. After seeing such a huge list of unnecessary ingredients, such as "corn maltodextrin", "sugar", "caramel colour", "hydrolyzed soya and corn protein" (in taco seasoning, really?) the quest for finding a delicious taco seasoning recipe was on.
I recommend making this seasoning in a larger batch and storing it in a spice shaker for easy use. Remember - eating is not about perfection but if we can make these simple substitutions (which taste just as delicious!) then we are definitely on the road to a healthier life.
