For this recipe to be Whole30, you’ll want to find a Whole30 approved hot sauce. Cholula and Tabasco do not contain sugar, or other ingredients not allowed on the Whole30 diet. If you’re not on the Whole30 diet, feel free to use your favorite hot sauce brand!

For the taco seasoning, I always make my own at home so I know exactly what’s in it! I always make a double or triple batch and keep it in a mason jar in my pantry!
