I like to add coconut flour in also. It adds healthy fiber without being noticed :-) Submitted by:

I make a taco seasoning similar to this, and use it in chili, enchiladas, etc. To your recipe above I add 2 tsp. cocoa powder, 2 tsp granulated garlic, 1 tsp. adobo seasoning (which contains some salt). You can also add smoked chili powder (chipotle) if you like a little hotter and spicier. - 11/2/0 Submitted by:

Like many of you I've used a similar recipe. Mine includes granulated garlic or garlic powder and oregano.

CLAIREZM - thanks for the tip on chili powder. I checked mine and it did have salt in it.

Haven't made this, but I like the option of not having all the sodium. A recipe I've been using has been amazing flavour and uses a lot of spices. I'm excited to see which one I like better. Submitted by:

How are there 2 grams of fat in this recipe? Ground peppers and ground cilantro contain no fat. Submitted by:

This is great! I use lean ground turkey meat, TJoes canned black refried beans, the above spices and seasalt. I stuff sprouted tortillas with the meat using a very small amount of lite mexican grated cheese - don't forget the enchilada sauce - very low in calories and bake! Top with lowfat yogurt!

This is a great recipe! Simple, quick, and without all of the salt in store bought taco seasonings. I'm not a big fan of heat, so I only used a pinch of the red pepper flakes, but my taco meat still packed enough punch to be delicious! Submitted by:

I had to use the whole thing w/one lb. of meat and it needed some salt. I also used some garlic powder and onion powder about 1t each. It tasted ok with our tacos. I wasn't amazed or anything, but am glad I don't have to go to the store to buy the packets.---thanks Submitted by:

Love the lack of sodium compared to a package. A staple spice in my cabinet. I use my home grown dried chopped cayenne pappers. Amazing! Submitted by:

It sounds great to make my own taco seasoning, but I'm confused with this recipe. Do you add this to 1 lb. of meat?
Is the fat g, and protein g. from the meat? and if so what kind of meat?
