Keto Friendly taco seasoning (Ditch the packet!)

Taco seasoning from a packet can be a quick and easy way to make tacos but unfortunately most packets have added sugar and a lot of carbs.

As you can see a typical packet has 24 Total carbs per pound of meat.Luckily it is easy to make your own taco seasoning from spices you probably already have.

Here is what I use, you can experiment with the spices to get the taste that you desire.

Ingredients (For 1 lb of meat):

2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste

*For spicier taco seasoning you can also add Cayenne pepper


  1. Brown 1 lb of meat
  2. Add salt & pepper while browning
  3. Once browned, add other spices
  4. Add a little water if its dry and not mixing in well
  5. Mix well, and taste. Make adjustments as needed to your taste.
  6. Eat some tacos guilt free! Use these zero carb / keto friendly taco shells to have a taco shell guilt free too!
