Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Taco Seasoning”

With all there is to accomplish at this time of year, I know it is important to find ways to keep certain aspects of your life simple. Entertaining doesn’t have to be an activity that overextends you or makes it impossible to get to your other tasks. I like to keep menus simple for holiday gatherings to help keep my sanity in check.

Tacos are an easy go-to for your early December tailgating parties. The ingredients are quick to assemble and guests can choose their own fillings as they build their plate, allowing the host the ease of not stressing about each attendant’s particular tastes and allergies.

Even though picking up a package of taco seasoning from the grocery store may be the simplest go-to option, I choose to always make my own blend at home. It honestly only takes a minute or two and allows you to control the sodium and flavor blend yourself. I will never go back to the packaged stuff.

This is the blend that I use on my ground beef for tacos, but it can be sprinkled on steaks, chicken, veggies, or even mixed with shredded cheese for a basic quesadilla.

Taco Seasoning

2 t. ground cumin

1 t. chili powder

1/2 t. seasoned salt

1/2 t. paprika

1 t. oregano

1/2 t. salt

Pinch of chili flakes

 

Mix together all of the spices in a small bowl. Use the blend to season up to 2 pounds of ground beef or sprinkle on chicken, steak or veggies before cooking for tacos.
