I liked this recipie. I have tried quite a few taco seasonings and they never came out nearly as good as this. This did come out a little too hot, but I think that was because there are huge differences in how and where you get chili powder. I was using pure Indian chili powder where most chili powder in American stores are much older and weaker and a mix of different types of chilis. I should have known to cut it down I would never even consider using this much even in super hot curry. I guess you could just use less mix but then you will have to give up the other flavors and like someone else said I am a garlic/onion lover and I would not want to give up that flavor. Better to adjust the powder than cut down flavor.
But since my family likes HOT food, they just added a little extra sour cream to reduce the heat. Next time I will stick to 1/2 a tbsp. I made a batch to keep on hand and i also skipped the red chili flakes. Never like them and they are redundant considering you already have chili powder. If you have kids who like the toco bell type you can consider adding 1/4 tsp of corn starch it will give it the texture they are used to. My kids love it that way, but not me.
