with no MSG or additives. Super easy to put together, 100% natural, low sodium (vs. the 300 mg you’ll find in one serving of the packaged stuff) and delicious. I usually make a quadruple batch and store leftovers!
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1.5 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt, to taste
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container. Or, you can mix it together in the container you are going to store it in, just shake it to mix!
Add 2 – 2 1/2 Tbsp of spice mixture plus 1/2 cup of water to one pound of cooked meat. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until there is very little liquid left in the pan.
Serve with your favorite taco shells and toppings!

1st place female, 6th overall. 1:37:50 officially. 8 minute PR because the only other 25k I’ve done on the roads was perhaps one of my worst races. Recap of that here, if you’re looking to kill time. http://runmdra.org/index.php/mdra-races/7-races/26-mdra-ron-daws-25k I did this to help get me through a long run/MP effort workout. It was such a…
Last, but certainly not least: the final physical preparations for Chicago marathon. *Strength Sessions – I’ve cut all of these out now except for an occasional light core workout. Instead, I spend a little more time after each run to stretch and roll. *Diet – Three weeks out, I cut out all alcohol, and two…
