A simple "mold-safe" recipe for making a guilt-free chipotle taco seasoning mix! This healthier version of taco seasoning is a recipe I use for many Mexican or Spanish-inspired dishes that I make.
In Phaze 2 I discuss the importance of removing gluten from your diet in order to heal from mold. Being gluten-free during the rest of the PhazeMoldDiet becomes one of the main reasons people fail on a mold diet.
Tacos and Fajitas were always one of my favorite foods until I realized that ALL of the taco and fajita spice mixes had both gluten AND sugar in them. I was determined to mix up my own version that did not include gluten, iodized salts, sugars, food colorings or other starches. Here is my mold-safe version of chipotle taco seasoning.

How to use chipotle taco seasoning mix: Brown the ground beef (or other meat) first. Then, add 2 tbsp (28 g) seasoning and 1/2 cup (120 mL) water per pound of meat. Simmer until the extra liquid evaporates or absorbs into the meat.
Don't forget to store your chipotle taco mix in an airtight glass container. Avoid storing herbs and spices in plastic bottles or containers to avoid toxic chemicals entering your mixes. Also...don't forget to label your jar so you know what it is.
