beller nutrition organic spices with cauliflower chickpea lettuce cup tacos recipe

Ever dream of making restaurant-quality tacos or street tacos without the added salt and TONS of unwanted additives found in typical taco seasoning recipes? It’s easier than you think!

This organic, no-salt seasoning adds a perfectly balanced, deep, and savory flavor with a not-too-spicy yet delicious flair.

What Makes Our Tex Mex Seasoning a Perfect Addition to Your Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe?

I carefully crafted Tex Mex to fire up flavor while maximizing spice synergy. And it’s packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Check out all of Tex Mex’s nutritional powers:

  • Ancho chili powder, paprika, and crushed chilis all contain the compound capsaicin, which is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Cumin and black pepper may help with digestion.
  • Onion and garlic have been linked to lower cancer risk (possibly due to organosulfur compounds and their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and detoxifying properties).
  • Cloves have been ranked as the #1 highest antioxidant source of any food.
  • Oregano is ranked as the food with the second-highest concentration of antioxidants (right behind cloves). Did you know that dried oregano contains even more antioxidants than fresh oregano?
  • Ceylon cinnamon adds a delicious complexity and may also have anti-inflammatory properties.

Cauliflower Lettuce Cup Chickpea Tacos

This no-recipe recipe is the perfect solution for a busy day when you need something easy and delicious. Cauliflower contains a compound called indole-3-carbinol that makes this dish a cancer-fighting cruciferous superhero. Paired with fiber and protein-fueled chickpeas and my Tex Mex seasoning blend, that brings a south-of-the-border, antioxidant-rich flair and you easily have a taco meal recipe that will go to great lengths to protect your health.
