My husband is very salt sensitive and diabetic. Many of the taco seasoning packets found in the store contain sugar and lots of salt. Many also contain a thickening agent (usually corn starch) that just adds calories and is not really necessary. Mix this homemade version up ahead to use instead for healthier Mexican-style food.
About 2 Tbsp. equals 1 regular packet for seasoning power. Use 1 Tbsp. for a milder flavor.
Be sure to read the label on your chili powder. It is a combination of spices. Most do not contain salt or sugar, but some might.
If you like the little chunks of onion or garlic in your seasoning, use dried, minced onion or garlic instead of the granulated or powdered version. You will need about twice as much as the amounts listed and it will change the nutritional information slightly.Submitted by BJMOOMEY
Cookbook creator says: When I make this, I'll use low sodium soup and taco mix as well as low fat cheese and soup. My poor hubby not only has to watch his carbs, he has to watch his fat intake as well, -- Will probably even try the "Salt-free Sugar-free Taco Seasoning Mix" recipe in this cookbook.Submitted by JOEKNEE
