Tacos are one of the simplest dishes to make when you’re in a hurry. However, often times pre-made taco seasoning can be filled with unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. Thankfully, homemade taco seasoning is simple to make and can be stored for future meal prep.
Here’s a simple and quick taco seasoning recipe. Make your life easy by making multiple batches and storing for future meals.
1.5 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (substitute paprika if no spice is desired)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Mix it all together.
We told you it was simple! Use this seasoning for tacos, fajitas and even barbecue rub. It’s also a great back-up for when you run out of your pre-made seasoning because you most likely have these spices already stocked in your spice cabinet.
I’ve been on a lean meat kick lately. I figure if I’m going to train my butt off for Tough Mudder I might as well go all the way and get a six pack. This basically means being extra strict! I wanted to turned something I already loved (and was pretty healthy) into something even more healthy and lean. I wanted fajitas that could fuel my body through an intense workout regimen. This is fajitas done Paleo with enough nutrients to fill you up and keep you going.
Heat grill to high heat.
Sprinkle chicken breast with salt & pepper for seasoning.
Place chicken on grill and cook for roughly 15 minutes (or until chicken is cooked thoroughly). Remove chicken from grill and slice into thin slices.
While chicken is cooking, slice iceberg lettuce in half. Remove and discard top lettuce leaf. Carefully remove remaining lettuce leafs which you will use as lettuce cups for your fajitas.
To assemble, place chicken in lettuce cups and top with broccoli slaw, avocado slices and salsa.
This meal is packed full of nutrients and is totally customizable based on your taste buds.
