~ Taco Seasoning ~

I stopped buying packets of taco seasoning a long time ago because I have a sensitivity to MSG and I didn't like all of the extra "things" i.e. chemicals that they put in a seemingly simple spice packet.

Here is a recipe for taco seasoning that is super easy and green. Why green you ask? By going to your local coop and buying spices out of the bulk jars you are minimizing the amount of packaging that goes into the landfill and you are getting fresher spices. Simple bring your own containers and have them weighed prior to filling. Canning jars work great for this, get the ones with wide mouths on them and then filling them is easy. Generally spices are also cheaper this way because you are only paying for spice, not the jar that it came in.

When you get home you can use a bigger canning jar to make a large batch of taco seasoning so that it is ready any time you need it.
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp roasted garlic granules
1 tsp mined dried onion
1 tsp each cumin, paprika, and salt
1 tsp of chipolte seasoning
pinch of cayeene pepper

Mix with meat and then add 1 tsp of arrowroot powder and a half of cup of water. Simmer until water has been absorbed.
