Taco seasoning is one of the first things I missed when I started the AIP. Unlike a "Paleo" diet, the Autoimmune Protocol removes nightshade vegetables and spices to aid in gut-healing. No peppers? No spicy food? These had been staples in our house. Tacos, taco bowls, and taco salad were go-to foods we ate at least once a week! I was delighted to find that I could replace my old taco seasoning (full of nightshade spices) with this zippy blend!
Below are two recipe variations for you. A strict AIP compliant blend plus the option of some seed-based spice additions if you have reintroduced seeds. If you haven't, don't worry, you will love the original strict AIP version! I also include add-ins for individual batches of taco meat.
