I have to profess something to you: I. Love. Tacos. I always have. I even used to fry my own taco shells back in the day. So imagine my heartbreak after removing nightshades from my diet and having to say “goodbye” to the spicy, saucy tacos I loved. Do you feel the same?
While I definitely don’t miss the unpleasant symptoms that accompanied this traditionally night-shade filled dish, I did miss the experience of enjoying a yummy taco. Well, I have good news. Are you ready? TACO NIGHT IS BACK BABY!
After working on this taco seasoning blend for a few years, I’ve finally perfected this night-shade free taco seasoning. The ginger gives it nice heat and spice while the turmeric gives color, richness and anti-inflammatory goodness. I’ve used this seasoning blend on taco night for all my Standard American Diet friends and they raved about it and couldn’t get enough. So, I’d call that a win.
