This is one of our “Recipes in Rotation” that we make about once a month.
This is a great seasoning that I think holds up to nearly any Mexican fast-food out there. We use it for ground turkey, but I have found you can use it with tofu, textured plant-based meat replacements and, combined with 2 cans of black beans and topped with a bit of cheese, a great bean dip, too.
Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes and cayenne to suit your taste, add in real chilis to stoke the fire further. All in all, this very flexible and a great staple item to have on hand so you can whip it up as necessary. It only takes 30 minutes or so and can be combined with any number of foods.
