One of the ways I have simplified my life is decluttering. Yep, all that extra stuff is a heavy load and a total stressor. The more you can accomplish using less is better and so freeing. Take that load off your brain and relax.
This includes my spice cabinet. At one time it was loaded with spices, blends, combos, and mixes of everything one might imagine. And of course, I couldn’t find anything.
I didn’t throw anything out, I just started NOT buying certain blends or mixes. And one mix I don’t buy is Taco Seasoning, no reason to spend extra money on those mixes when I have all the ingredients already on hand. And if we get in the mood for Tacos, I don’t have to check to see if I have the mix.

But the most important reason we don’t buy it anymore is that we can make our own sugar free Taco Seasoning. And if you notice on the package store-bought seasonings contains more than the Mexican spice mix we need. It contains sugar, potato starch and “natural flavor” (not sure what that is). Our Mexico spice recipe makes a low carb taco seasoning so that we don’t consume added sugar or other mysterious ingredients.

Mix all the Mexican spice ingredients with a dinner fork or small whisk. Use this entire recipe for 1 lb of ground beef or if you double or triple it use about 2 Tablespoons for each pound of beef. But tacos are not the only recipe where I use these Mexican spice recipe. We use it on chicken, pork and steaks.
Note: you might wish to go a little easy on the crushed red pepper if you don’t like spicy.
