Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe and Paleo Diet Approved Taco Wraps

The seasoning isle in the grocery store is one of my favorite isles to shop in.  I have a weakness for spices, sauces, and rubs to help spice up my meals and bring a little excitement to our food.  You can totally change a meal just by switching the types of seasoning you use!  One thing you have to be careful of when buying sauces and premade flavor packages is the addition of ‘extra’ ingredients you may not really want to be eating.  MSG, anti caking agents, artificial flavors and colors, etc.  I was thrilled to received a copy of The DIY Pantry: 30 Minutes to Healthy, Homemade Food to review and was really impressed with the recipe selection.  (check out my review for more info!) This recipe for homemade taco seasoning was absolutely amazing!  It tastes exactly like taco seasoning you buy in the envelopes at the grocery store.  And I know EXACTLY what is in there!  Here is the homemade taco seasoning recipe from the cookbook and below the recipe you will find directions on how to make a paleo diet approved taco wrap.    (I would start with 2 tsp of seasoning for a pound of ground beef and adjust to taste as needed!)
