Taco Meat....

Recommended Posts

Guest ~jules~

My family loves tacos, we eat them all the time. My favorite seasoning has wheat flour in it, and I can't find one that isn't bland. I'm up for making my own or suggestions of a good one at the store. Thanks Julie

Our favorite seasoning is Ortega. I haven't made tacos since Lorelai's switch to gluten free (plus she can't eat that sort of thing yet anyway), but I believe it is gluten free.

Try adding Chilli powder, garlic powder, pepper, cayeene pepper, salsa and/or water.

McCormick is gluten free but has whey or something like that in I think.

Fiddle Faddle has a wonderful taco seasoning recipe.

If you want to make your own, let me know and I'll post fiddle-faddle's recipe. :)

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I copied her post from when she posted for me.

Thank you again fiddle-faddle if you see this thread. :P

Taco Seasoning

1 T chili powder

2 t onion powder (or just grate some fresh onion)

1 t cumin

1 t garlic powder

1 t paprika (I use Hungarian sweet)

1 t dried oregano

1 t or T sugar

1/2 t salt

1 T cornmeal

1t cornstarch

Use like the packets--mix with the browned meat, add 3/4 H2O and let bubble to whatever consistency you like. My kids like it sweet, so I also add a squirt of molasses.

I just use cumin, onion powder, chili powder, and garlic salt. Works for me, and tastes as good or better than the packets :)


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

Yes, they make cumin powder. We love it!

If you have a coffee mill you can grind the seed yourself.
