Gluten Free Taco Salad

Tonight we made delicious Taco Salads for dinner. We love combining new ingredients each time we make the salad to incorporate new tastes and textures. Taco seasoning from the grocery store, however, often contains hidden gluten. So, beware when buying packaged taco seasoning! Tonight we used this simple home made version of taco seasoning:

Homemade Taco Seasoning

5 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Chipotle Chili Powder
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
2 Tbsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1. Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl.
2. Add 2 Tbsp (or desired amount) to ground beef while cooking.
3. Add 1/2 cup water to ground beef and cook until water is reduced.

We served our taco salad tonight with Gluten Free corn tortilla chips, yellow rice, stir fried corn, and loads of lettuce. Since Doodle is dairy free, she eats hers without any dressing. The remainder of us enjoyed some nice spicy ranch dressing bought at the local grocery store. Best thing about it, there's plenty left over for lunch tomorrow!
