How much water to add to the taco seasoning and meat

You’ll need to add about 1/2 cup of water to your meat and taco seasoning. Because there are no fillers, it won’t thicken up like a store-bought seasoning mix. The water will just evaporate through the cooking process, but adding it helps evenly coat the meat.

How much does this recipe for taco seasoning make?

This recipe makes enough seasoning for 2-3 lbs of meat, depending on how much is used. If you use 2 tablespoons per pound of meat as recommended, you’ll have enough for two pounds of meat with a little left over. If your family likes things a little less spicy, it should last for three pounds.

However, making it in bulk is a GREAT idea. It will be your go-to mix for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, soups, and lots of other dishes. You can never have too much on hand!

This low carb taco seasoning works for beef, chicken, or turkey in the 2 TBSP to one pound of meat ratio. Remember to brown the meat first before adding the taco seasoning. If you use it for fish tacos (especially mild fish), you may want to cut the seasoning in half and then taste it from there.
