I am a soon-to-be 30 year old gay man born and raised in the greater Boston area.
You may have known me once upon a time as "The Gay Sean" but I have stepped away from using my own sexuality as direct branding. That said, it still lives. My new online presence, tgseanie, is a blend of the former, The Gay Sean, and my family nickname, Seanie.
I invite you to check out all my social links below (I'm @tgseanie everywhere). However you follow me, I hope you enjoy what I have to offer and tag me in your creations.
4 tablespoons chili powder2 tablespoons cumin1 tablespoon paprika1 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon garlic powder1 teaspoon dried onion1 teaspoon oregano1 teaspoon black pepper1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning (optional)
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store seasoning in a dry place away from moisture.
Single Skillet Taco Night
1 pound extra-lean ground turkey or beef2 cups chopped red or sweet onion (about 1 medium onion)1 teaspoon minced garlic2 ¼ cups water1 16-ounce jar of your favorite salsa (this is where the fun starts)1 cup fresh or frozen corn (no need to thaw if frozen)1 cup uncooked white rice~¼ cup Seanito Seasoning (or 1 packet of regular taco seasoning)1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional)
Got everything? Let's get cookin’!
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute onions in a healthy drizzle of olive oil. Add turkey (or beef) and garlic, stirring to crumble, until meat is browned (about 8-10 minutes). Drain if needed.Add water, salsa, corn, rice, taco seasoning, and hot sauce to skillet, stirring to combine. Cover and continue cooking over medium heat until rice is done, stirring thoroughly every 5ish minutes (about 18-20 minutes total cook time).When water is mostly evaporated or absorbed, remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes uncovered.Serve with desired toppings.
Optional toppings: cheese, additional salsa or hot sauce, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, minced fresh cilantro, guacamole or chopped avocados, chopped green onions, reduced-fat sour cream. It’s taco night, have fun with this!
Alternative Serving Suggestion: You can also serve this as a multi-layer dip with your favorite tortilla chips! Fill a large casserole dish with the taco dinner blend you already made. Add layers of guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream. Top with a layer of your favorite shredded cheese and sliced jalapeños.
(Optional: Pop it all in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese for a truly remarkable experience!)
