A few months back, Shawn looked at the ingredients in the Taco Kit that we always bought and found a few that we try not to eat. Scary. Who knew that such unnatural things could make their way into spice packets and crispy shells? Since then, we have switched to more natural, organic shells. But the seasoning has been a challenge.
A few years ago, I experimented with making my own seasoning and it was good. The only problem was that it was a spicy seasoning — and neither my husband or my children like things as spicy as I do. So, I set out to make an all new seasoning that has high-flavor without the six-alarm heat. This is the result.
The kids like this seasoning even better than the packets they are used to. It’s flavorful enough that I am happy too — and if I want more heat, I can always add some chopped jalapenos or hot salsa to mine. Everybody’s happy, and that makes me even more happy.
