An easy low carb taco seasoning mix for all your keto recipes. It’s a simple spice mix that you’ll want to keep on hand for using in Mexican dishes.
I’m such a fan of low carb Mexican food that I have a pretty good collection of taco flavored recipes on the site.
In an effort to make things easier, I thought I should come up with a pre-made low carb taco seasoning mix.
Typically, I just make up a spice blend for every recipe. But, if you do a lot of Mexican dishes, it’s better to have your seasoning blend already mixed.
The nice thing about making your own blend of spices is that you can customize it to your own taste.
Some people may like something with more heat while others prefer something on the mild side.
I love things a bit on the hot side while my husband likes it mild. So, I usually try to find a happy medium.
My low carb taco seasoning is not to hot or mild. But, if you find it a little too much to one side, it’s easy to make a little adjustment.
The seasoning mixes you find in the pouches at the store usually add in unnecessary starches and or sugar.
So, if you tend to buy those, be sure to check out the ingredients and the grams of sugar per serving.
Sugar is often added to enhance the flavor of seasoning blends. That’s why you need to check the ingredient list if you are buying a commercially prepared mix.
If you think about it, there’s no need to buy a pre-made spice mix. It may seem convenient. But is it really worth it?
There’s little time involved to make your own low carb taco seasoning mix. And, you won’t be getting any unwanted sugar or starch in your own blend.
Starch is added to thicken up the meat sauce when making tacos. However, that’s not essential and you can do the same thing if desired.
Once you start making your own seasoning blends, you’ll never want to go back to those prepared ones again.
