Dairy and Gluten Free Taco Seasoning Mix and Tex-Mex Rice

I love Tex-Mex flavors!  They are so bold and vibrant!  I am sharing 2 recipes with you today :)  One for the taco seasoning mix and one for the Tex-Mex Rice that you can make with it.

Taco Seasoning Mix

2 tbs cayenne pepper
1/4 cup salt
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup paprika
1/2 cup onion powder
1/2 cup garlic powder
1/2 cup cumin
1 cup chili powder

Whisk together and store in an air tight container.
For 1 lb ground meat add 3 tbs and 1/3 cup water.

Tex-Mex Rice

1 tbs olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbs taco seasoning
1 tbs dried cilantro
2 cups frozen corn
2 cups rice
4 cups water
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can tomato sauce

In a pot with a tight fitting lid saute the onion in the olive oil.
When the onions begin to turn transluscent add the garlic and rice, sauteing for about 1 minute.
Add the taco seasoning, cilantro, corn, and water.
Bring to a boil.
Place the lid on the pot and reduce heat as low as possible.
Cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed.
Stir in the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce.
