When we learned that my son could not eat garlic, we found that we needed to clean out the spice cabinet of quite a few items. This also meant that I had to create my own spice mixes for certain common items we like to eat, like taco seasoning. I adapted a recipe I found in a diabetic cookbook and came up with the following mix. It doesn’t produce the dark red-colored meat like store-bought taco seasonings do, but it does taste really good. This amount of mix will season up to 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef.
