This week's recipe is brought to you by my ill-prepared dinner plan for last night. M and I came up with the brilliant plan to make gluten-free nachos! We had everything we needed- except the taco seasoning! I raided my spice rack and we made our own. I am glad we did for many reasons: time with M in the kitchen, the possibility to customize the heat level and the fact that many store bought mixes are not GF! Keep an eye out for sneaky gluten sources!
GLUTEN-FREE TACO SEASONING
(makes the equivalent of 2 seasoning packets- enough to season 2 lbs. of meat)
Add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of seasoning mix and 1/4 cup (60 mL)) water to 1 lb. of cooked & drained meat. (We used ground turkey)
Simmer until all the water is gone.
Use your seasoned meat in tacos, enchiladas, burritos, casseroles or on nachos!
Store any remaining seasoning mix in an air tight container.
