How To Use Taco Seasoning
I mostly use this seasoning when I am making taco meat for taco salads, keto tacos or keto nachos. Brown one pound of ground beef in a skillet over medium high heat. Then sprinkle in the taco seasoning. Stir together for a minute to let the heat develop the flavor of the spices. Add ¼ cup of water, turn the heat to low, cover and simmer for at least 5 minutes. The longer the meat simmers in the seasoning, the better it will taste. Add more water if the mixture gets too dry.
You can also add this taco seasoning to flank steak or chicken to make fajitas. It also makes a wonderful seasoning for shrimp too!
How To Store Taco Seasoning
Taco seasoning can be stored in an airtight container on the shelf for several months.
