Welcome to our Taco Masala Master Guide! Learn how to use our house Taco Masala — a punchy, umami-packed blend of ground chillies, Pahadi Pink Garlic, cumin, ajwain, black pepper, onion powder, sumac, jaggery, and a kiss of salt — to make the easiest, Tex-Mex-inspired taco filling. You can use it with ground beef, or any ground meat really (if you're using lean ground beef, ground chicken or turkey, brown the meat in 2 tablespoons oil, please — fat is flavor!). Or, for our plant-based eaters, this spice blend is great with mushrooms or cauliflower.
We developed our Taco Masala to make damn good taco filling, but it's as versatile as it is delicious. Use it to make Asha's Spicy Paneer Crunchwrap or Southwest Rajma Chili. This spicy-smoky-garlicky blend also makes a fun rub for chicken, steak, pork chops, and white fish, like cod, halibut, and rockfish. Or, toss with buttered popcorn, tater tots, or French fries.
