Taco Seasoning Packets

Living in Europe, it is not easy to get Taco Spice mixture in the shops. If I get lucky, I might find it in the specialty shops, but then, when I read all of the ingredients, I return it back immediately.

And I simply do not understand, why would someone have a need to add starches, sugar, cornmeal, preservatives and so on. 

Making your own Low Carb Taco Seasoning does not cost much, is done in seconds and you can store it for at least a year. 

Best Keto Taco Seasoning you can get is always homemade.

Taco Packets made at home

I have calculated and made the mixture in a way that it is almost equivalent to the store bought taco packets. So here goes the calculations:

For 1 pound of meat, you usually need 1 packet of old el paso taco seasoning, which is approximately 2 tablespoons of our Keto taco Seasoning ingredients Mix. 

Keto Taco Seasoning for 1 Pound equals to 2 Tablespoons of our homemade gluten-free keto taco seasoning.

Does Taco Seasoning have carbs?

Any seasonings, that includes dry herbs, have some kind of carbohydrates in it. 
The amount depends on what addition is in there. If you have a store bought taco seasoning and starches or sugar are added, then you have to really calculate that in.

But if you do have your own DIY Taco Seasoning made at home, even though it does contain a tiny bit of carbs, it is almost non-existent. 

Our Taco spice recipe contains 3 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of Fiber for 1 Tablespoon or 1/2 packet of the seasoning. 

Do Herbs and Seasonings have Calories?

Like any food, or any seasonings, the amount of calories depends on what exactly and how much of it you put in. 
With our Keto Friendly Taco Seasoning, 1 Tablespoon of the spice contains 11 calories. 

List of Spices for Taco Seasoning

Homemade Keto Taco Seasoning Herbs and Spices:

  • Chili Powder – main ingredient in any Taco seasonings. It gives that perfect spicy flavor to all of the Taco dishes
  • Smoked Paprika – additionally to chili, where paprika is already combined, smoked paprika adds not only flavor, but beautiful bright color to your meals
  • Garlic Powder – as dry garlic is dehydrated and no additional spiciness included, you can add more of it if you do like the flavor
  • Onion Powder – together with garlic it is a must herb in your mixture
  • Dry Oregano – with it great healthy benefits and great strong flavor, this herb is always searched for to use 
  • Cumin – with its distinctive aroma and flavor used to blend chili powder with

Tip and Tricks:

Amount – the amount of each spice or a herb really depends on your taste. I have tried to replicate the store bought packets with amounts. 

Uses – always add Taco seasoning after you have finished cooking your ground beef or meat as mostly smoked paprika might get a bit bitter.
