Taco Seasoning and Taco Chicken Tenders



I needed some Taco Seasoning for a recipe and was out of my favorite Penzy blend. No fear, within seconds I had more Taco Seasoning recipes than one could ever need. I wondered how there could be so many different recipes for the same thing??? I chose one that I had all the ingredients for, because I did need it immediately. It was very tasty; I saved the recipe and knew I had to blog about it quickly as I have a very short memory.
So, throw out your prepackaged Taco Seasoning--it has too much sugar and salt (read the label) and other stuff. This was delicious!

Taco Seasoning
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix together, use in any recipe calling for Taco Seasoning.

Taco Chicken Tenders
Use about 1 tablespoon per pound on chicken tenders. Fry chicken in a tablespoon of oil about 4 minutes per side. The chicken has a beautiful color and is so tasty. Serve with roasted veggies and fresh fruit. Easily a 30 minute meal.

I can't tell you the last time a bought taco seasoning. It is so easy and so much better to make your own, I want to try this soon. My recipe doesn't have sugar in it.
