Making your own Healthy Taco Seasoning isn’t that hard to do and is SO much better for you than what you can pick up at the store. Reading what they add to those small and expensive taco packets is scary, when you can’t pronounce the ingredients you know its probably not good for you. We like to make this in large containers and store it along side our other spices, so its ready when we need it.
Try doing some prep work and brown 6-10 pounds of hamburger at a time and seasoning it with the Healthy Taco Seasoning. You’re cooking anyways, why not cook extra for a future dinner. Then divide them into individual family servings, with our large families we like to do 2 pounds at a time when we freeze them. Then the night before we pull them out of the freezer and place them in the refrigerator, by dinner time it’s perfect and just needs to be reheated! Anything we can do to save time in the kitchen is a bonus. Our kids also like to have the seasoned meat on hand to make nachos, salads, or tacos.
These tacos are one of our favorites. We love them because we ditch the flour shell and use lettuce as the shell instead. We really like to use butter lettuce or the baby romaine lettuce you find at Costco. If you haven’t been using the baby romaine from Costco, you’re missing out. They stay fresh forever and make the cutest tacos. Featured in this recipe is taco meat made with Healthy Taco Seasoning, butter lettuce, tomatoes, onions, avocado, Dump Ranch and cilantro. Dump ranch is a must when making tacos!!
Excited for you to try this Healthy Taco Seasoning. This is just another way to make a small changes in your families health!
