Commonly Asked Questions

What can I use instead of sour cream?

If you’re looking to make this recipe a little healthier, swap your sour cream for the same amount of plain Greek yogurt. It lends just the right amount of tangy and creamy to offset the heavy spices found in Mexican dishes. Plus, it is lower in calories and fat, giving you an excuse to go back for seconds!

Can I make my own taco seasoning?

Absolutely! In fact, we prefer it as you get to control the level of spice! The spices you would find in a typical pack of taco seasoning are chilli powder, smoked paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, oregano, salt, and pepper. Don’t worry if you’ve made too much, you can always store this for the next time a recipe calls for taco seasoning!
