Tip of the Day
I keep going back to that taco seasoning recipe, but for good reason: it is a workhorse and very quick. I've learned two things about it lately. First, onion power seems to be safe whereas onions are definitely not at my house. Second, you can tweak it to come even closer to tasting like the Mexican restaurant down the street. I have started replacing about 1/4 of my chili powder (the deep red stuff you can find at the grocery store) with ancho chili powder. It's a lighter brown and adds an earthiness that will make your seasoning stand out even more. The variety I found has some heat, otherwise I would probably put in more. Enjoy!
