WOAH! This has certainly been a busy month!
With my late work hours and busy weekends preparing for Yom Tov, I’ve grown to love (again!) my crockpot. At least twice a week it gets used – chicken and rice, split pea soup and a new recipe from my “Twitter” friend, Caroline – Taco Soup! I’ll post another recipe for that another time, but it does call for a pack of Taco Seasoning. Has anyone else ever noticed the sodium count on those! Oh Boy!
On a mission to find a healthier version, here is the recipe I came up with.
- ¼ cup chili powder
- 2T ground cumin
- 1.5T salt
- 1.5T black pepper (freshly cracked, if possible)
- 2t paprika
- 1t garlic powder
- 1t onion powder
- 1t crushed red pepper flakes
- 1t dried oregano
- Place all ingredients in a container, shake it up and store in a cool, dark place.
- If you have a spice blender, go ahead and give it a whirl!
