Alicia back with another post on a favorite recipe of ours. This month I'm sharing recipes that my little family has loved and continues to come back to over and over again.
The Best Taco Seasoning Ever
Today, I have not necessarily a meal but a seasoning mix that will make your meal great! This taco seasoning is something my husband makes whenever we're having Mexican food. The flavors are not authentic Mexican but are inspired by his favorite Mexican and Ecuadorian food flavors. A blend of two tasty (well their food anyway) countries!
This taco seasoning is so flavorful but not spicy at all. So if you're worried about that, don't be.The flavor is superb, and takes your meal to another level. It can be used on beef, pork, chicken, veggies, beans, basically whatever you want to taste amazing, you can put this seasoning on.
It works great if you just put it directly on the food, but my husband adds the seasoning to water and then pours that over the cooked food (if it's meat he takes the fat and grease out of the pan first) and lets the water simmer away about 98% of the way. This leaves the meat tender, not dry, and full of flavor!
The one thing about cooking, though, is you don't always measure stuff out. You add a little here and there, and that's how this was originally made and has been made since. So we have tried to measure out the amounts of each spice for you to get the best results, but it's customizable to your tastes.
The most recent time we used this we made burritos. and they were scrumptious. Look through the gallery below to see the process and what we used in our burritos.
Mixing up a big batch of the seasoning and putting it in a container could be a fun stocking stuffer or gift for your friend that loves to cook!
