The Flavor of Tacos…

I came across this recipe for taco seasoning, and carefully measured the ingredients to make it, stirred them up, and was amazed how much this smelled, and tasted!, like the taco seasoning you buy in those little packets.

Taco Seasoning Mix
Fills one regular sized spice jar.
2 tablespoons chili powder
3 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
4½ teaspoons ground cumin
3 teaspoons onion powder
3 teaspoons sea salt
3 teaspoons garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Store in a cool dark place, tightly-sealed in a glass jar.
I found the recipe here: The Gluten Free Vegan

I could not wait to try this in something, so I adapted this recipe of taco soup, and the result was one of the best vegan dinners I’ve tried all month! This recipe was quick to toss together, easy for a weeknight, and the taco seasoning really made this marvelous!

Taco Soup
Serves 5
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1 can diced tomatoes, Rotel or other brand with peppers
1 can pinto beans, rinsed
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can of corn, drained

1 tsp salt
1 TBLS homemade taco seasoning
1 Avocado
Corn tortilla chips
Add everything to a pot, bring to a boil, simmer for 10 or 15 minutes.
Dish soup, sprinkle with cubed avocado, and serve with corn tortilla chips.
