Low Sodium Taco Seasoning - Low in Salt
But Packed With Flavour and Aromas

If you want a low sodium taco seasoning then making one yourself is the way to go. Unlike a commercial blend, you have complete control over the ingredients and can add or omit anything you like or dislike. Below is a hot and spicy mix in which I use 1 teaspoon of salt. Feel free to leave this out if you desire. It'll still be super tasty!

Note: If you don't have whole cumin or peppercorns,simply use cumin powder and ground pepper and reduce the amount the recipe says by half. For example, instead of 4 tablespoons of cumin seeds you use 2 tablespoons of pre-ground cumin. Reduce the peppercorns likewise.
