Last night we made tacos.
Generally we have used the packaged seasoning mix, but we have been worried about potential food allergies, and a quick perusal of the ingredients list resulted in numerous red flags. MSG, maltodextrine, and numerous unpronouncable chemicals.
We found a recipe for taco seasoning online here, and cut it down to a pinch of red pepper flakes and no added salt, and added half a tablespoon of cornstarch, and then used it just like the seasoning packet (ie, added the cup of water). We also cooked the ground beef with real onions and garlic and grated zucchini (I add vegetables everywhere!).
It tasted really good, and by controling the amount of salt and eliminating the scary chemicals, it was ten times better for you!
And guess what? The tacos still dripped that radioactive orange goo!
Who knew orange goo was all natural?
