Got a craving for tacos, but can’t find a safe seasoning at the store? Me either! So I developed this stupid simple version and it’s better than what McCormick can offer!
1 teaspoon ground sumac
1 teaspoon of ground mace
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 tablespoon Oregano
1 tablespoon Cumin
1 tablespoon Coriander
1 tablespoon Cilantro
2 tablespoons of ground turmeric
2 tablespoons of ground annato
Put all seasoning mix ingredients in a small glass jar. Put the lid on and shake until well combined.
Use 1.5 to 2 Tablespoons per pound of meat (ground beef, pork, chicken, etc.), or to taste.
Brown meat in a large skillet. Stir the seasoning and 3 teaspoons tamarind paste into the browned meat with about a 1/4 cup of water, simmer until dry.
Add additional lime juice & chopped cilantro if desired. Serve.
