    WooHoo! I’m first! I was actually ready early this wk, can you believe it?
    I make my own seasoning too. Much better, and less expensive.
    Thanks for hosting, Amy!

    I’m glad to have this recipe for taco seasoning! I always feel like I’m going against my healthy roots when I buy the packaged stuff.

    This week I’m linking to my Sweet Potato Coconut Soup, which I’m really wishing I could eat more of right now…but I need leftovers for the rest of the week!

    No worries! I love the sound of this seasoning. So much better than the one my brother tried to make. His ended up being more of a pepper taco (like black pepper). It was very peppery. Seriously, the ground chicken was white with specks of black. This definitely sounds like a better option =D.

    Super excited to see the book. Yum!

    I love making my own spice combos too. They taste great and no sugar. Why do they feel the need to add sugar to everything. It’s really crazy. I guess since it’s so addicting.

    I keep Jerk seasoning and Blackening seasoning on hand that I made. We love those spicy flavors!

    I usually make my own taco seasoning as well. You’re right, so much cheaper, and you don’t have gluten or sugar!

    thanks so much for this recipe! I’ve been wanting a taco seasoning one.

    I love your curry powder recipe, btw. Use it almost daily in all kinds of things.

    @leih, Thanks so much – I love all kinds of feedback on my recipes. It’s so helpful. I’d love to hear about what you use it in, too. I am always looking for new ideas.

    @Amy,

    Hi Amy,

    Well, I’ve been using the curry powder when cooking eggs, mixing it in with my home made mayo to make chicken salad and such, and also made a curry dish. I’ve also sprinkled it on some cooked vegeables. It’s really good!

    I’m loving this Amy. It is so much fun! I hope my link works this time. I felt so “normal” eating banana pudding which tasted just like the “real” thing, as my husband says, “Is it real?” Blessings.

    I was talking to Linda (The GF homemaker)about homemade taco spice, and she suggested using the spice recipe as a simple gift idea for Christmas. I thought it was a great idea to pass along to you.

    @Chelsey, That’s a great idea – it’s frugal and something people would use, which is important. My friend, Alta, recently made a chili rub for pork – I think that’s going to be a gift for some people this year. I’m going to post my version soon.

    YES! Thank you for this! Before Celiac I used taco seasoning all the time, and now I have been looking for some good GF brands, but I like the idea of making my own…

    @Karen, Have you ever tried making your own spice blends before?

    @Amy,
    No, I haven’t. It’s something I would like to do & have a desperate need to do now. I suspect I have your problem w/the addition of allergies to yeast, garlic, all things dairy, & other things as well. I was happy to find your sight needless to say!

    @Karen, I have a substitution page that will help you find suitable products to sub for many of the foods you can’t eat.

    Thank you! Can you think of any reason why a non-dairy cream cheese would make me ill? I was so happy to have found something like that (and a sour cream in the same brand), but I tried to eat it twice with disastrous results even though the label read that there was nothing in either product that should affect me so negatively. I suppose it could be brand specific… although it hardly encourages me to want to try another. lol Even a shredded cheese substitute product that I had found (and liked, naturally) turned out to have yeast in it. Didn’t know I had the yeast problem when I began eating it. In looking for ancho chili powder I was examining the label of one brand to see if it might be ancho I found it was actually a blend of garlic (to which I’m
    allergic) as well as cumin, something else, and some kind of unspecified chili powder! It’s a mine field out there.

    @Karen, What was in the non-dairy cream cheese?
