Tacos are one of the easiest and quickest meals to make and we always have the ingredients on hand. Tacos don’t have to be a processed unhealthy meal. By either making my own whole wheat tortillas or using plain brown rice as a base for a rice bowl, there is no need for overly processed flour tortillas. And by making my taco seasoning ahead of time, to avoid the preservative filled taco seasoning packet, tacos are a quick weeknight nutritious meal.
Top them with some lettuce, tomato, greek yogurt, and avocado and the meal is complete and incredibly healthy!
2 Tbs chili powder
4 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on spice level desired)
Mix all together.
This should season 2-3 lbs of meat, so the equivalent of 2-3 packets of taco seasoning. You can double the recipe and keep it stored in airtight container so you always have it on hand.
