I don’t know about you, but I could eat tacos pretty much every night. Maybe every morning, too, if I’m being honest.

Although it would be fun, I probably should eat other foods, including vegetables. (Let’s be honest, salsa and shredded lettuce barely count as vegetables.) So what does a taco addict such as myself do?

Incorporate my favorite taco seasoning into my diet in different ways, of course!

This Spicy Taco Hummus is super easy to make and is such a great way to get the taste of tacos while encouraging vegetable consumption (or you can just ignore that thought and dip tortilla chips or pretzels in it… I won’t judge). It’s sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free, so it’s suitable for a wide variety of diets, plus it’s packed with protein.

To make it, you’ll first need to make my homemade taco seasoning. I started making my own taco seasoning because it’s a heck of a lot cheaper and the homemade version doesn’t contain any weird fillers (including sugar). Make that seasoning real quick and come back to this recipe!
