Does anyone have a LAWL recipe for Taco Meat? The packages are so high in sodium. Also, how much of the meat would equal 1 protein? TIA!

I have a recipe or Taco Seasoning & Chili Powder. 3oz of Ground Beef and 4oz of Ground Turkey is a serving on the numbered plans. I don't know what the serving size is for the old plans.

Recipe for Taco Seasoning
* 6 teaspoons of chili powder
* 5 teaspoons paprika
* 4 ½ teaspoons cumin
* 2 ½ teaspoons onion powder
* 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
* 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions for Recipe for Taco Seasoning:
Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Mix by shaking well. Store in a cool dry place forup to 6 months.

This recipe for taco seasoning makes about ½ cup or 21 teaspoons. Side note: 7 teaspoons of this mix will equal one package of store bought taco seasoning.

Special note: If you want your recipe for taco seasoning to taste even more authentic, consider making your own chili powder at home as well.

Recipe for Chili Powder
* 1 teaspoon paprika
* 2 teaspoons ground cumin
* 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1 teaspoon oregano
* 2 teaspoons garlic powder

Combine all ingredients; store in an airtight container.
