DIY Keto Taco Seasoning Mix

Whether I have cheese shell tacos, low carb tortillas, or simply lettuce wraps, taco Tuesdays (and, okay, sometimes Thursdays too…) are a pretty regular occurrence for me. Unfortunately, almost all of the major brands of taco seasoning are made with cornstarch, flour, maltodextrin, sugar, and/or other carb-based fillers.

Now a couple grams of carbs here or there probably won’t ruin your macros for the day, but making your own keto taco seasoning mix instead means that you can save those carbs for salsa, toppings, or dessert instead. This simple keto taco seasoning recipe is quick and easy to make, and adds tons of flavor without the fillers.
