Allergy Friendly Taco Seasoning

 

First, let me say…yes, I am still here!

As mentioned late last year, my family was blessed with the opportunity in August, 2016, to help care for and provide for my cousin’s (then) 2 month old baby. I am pleased to share that he is still with us, but as you can surely understand…adding a sixth child, an infant, proved to be more challenging than I thought!

Between the three major moves my family made from August 2015-July 2016, to getting the baby…my blogging has taken a huge set back.

Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me regardless.

That being said, with summer in full swing, I am praying that these posts become more of a regular happening than the rarity they have been.

I HAVE SO MANY RECIPES TO SHARE WITH YOU!!!

🙂 

As it is with food allergy families, we have come to find that we are managing more than just Dairy, Gluten and Shellfish allergies in our home! (Fun, right?)

The baby isn’t doing well with most grains, although he can tolerate amaranth and corn.

But then we recently discovered that my 13 year old gluten and dairy-free daughter is HIGHLY sensitive to corn!!

Luckily, we are a mostly grain-free family as it is.

Even so…we LOVE Mexican food!

Being gluten-free, this meant that we would occasionally splurge on corn chips, corn tortillas, etc. etc. (all non-GMO of course). 

With this new discovery, we have been forced to really revamp that splurge. 

And since corn is in everything (including your table salt, people…DEXTROSE! Ugh!), we have really re-honed our “make everything from scratch” efforts. 

Which, admittedly, with a baby in the house, I had fallen out of routine with. 

Given that it has been months since I have shared a recipe, I thought I would start with one that has long been a staple in our home…one that I have gained new appreciation for since my daughter’s diagnosis, and one that I hope you’ll come to love as much as we do!

We love to serve this over lettuce for a taco salad, in butter lettuce or romaine leaves for lettuce wrap tacos…and sometimes (not often) on top of a baked potato (my cross country runners especially love this!). 

This is a 2-for-1 recipe post…so please, enjoy! I look forward to hearing how you enjoy our take on Allergy Friendly Taco Seasoning! xoxo
