Chicken Taco Seasoning Mix, SCD compliant

We had a favorite seasoning from Penzeys, called Arizona Dreaming, that was great for seasoning chicken for chicken tacos, or sprinkling onto any Mexican or Southwest style dish. My kid’s new medical Specific Carbohydrate Diet for IBD, does not allow some of the ingredients in it, so I went about coming up with an SCD compliant seasoning mix that would fill the void. This has been a success! There is a cumin sensitivity in our house, but feel free to add some, if you can have it.

How to Make Chicken Taco Seasoning Mix, SCD compliant

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together & store in an airtight glass container.

    Great on grilled chicken, left over rotisserie chicken, shredded chicken, or ground chicken/turkey, or even black beans, for tacos. Use as much as tastes right. Add salt to taste, if desired. Also great sprinkled on just about any Mexican style dish that needs a bit of zing. Guacamole, in a burrito, or quesadilla, etc.
  2. Note:

    Citric Acid is the type of acid in citrus fruit, that comes in little crystals like salt. It is sometimes called sour salt, because it looks like salt, though it contains no salt. It is one way to increase flavor without adding salt, if you are on a low sodium diet. You can buy it easily online, or sometimes locally. It makes this spice mix a convenient time saver.

    But you can always squeeze fresh lime juice into whatever you are making, instead, if you don’t mind the extra liquid.
