This was very similar to Taco Bell Home Originals seasoning. It did have the same flavor although it wasn't identical, it was close enough to call this a copycat recipe indeed. We actually liked this better than the packaged mix and much better than the take out from the fast food joint. I added this and about a cup of broth to the pan with the raw meat and then broke the beef up to look like a meat soup, then simmered until the liquid was gone. I didn't have boullion granules so I used a cube and changed the garlic salt to plain garlic powder so it wouldn't be too salty. This is mild and while it had some warmth from the cayenne, it isn't spicy at all. We ate tacos, tostadas, and nachos from this for several days and this was fabulous. My husband said this is his favorite taco beef recipe so make this from now on!!! I agree, this is really good and I will be using this now as my go-to taco filling. Thanks for the winner!
This had good reviews so I thought I would try it. It was easy to put together but the taste was awful. There actually was very little taste.
I kept adding chili powder, cumin and even cilantro.
Family loved it! I think it was spot on! I did double the recipe because I used it on ground deer (which is a bit gamier). Wonderful flavor and I will no longer be buying the taco bell seasonings as I will be using this from now on! Thanks for sharing!
Worked perfectly in my seven layer dip. Thickened up the taco meat "juice" perfectly.
Simple seasoning mix that is a fairly accurate recreation of Taco Bell seasoning. Added olive oil and sriracha and made into a marinade for fajita veggies and beef.
To get the meat be the correct consistency boil the meat in 1 quart of water first.. works everytime.. then add spices..
Thank you! I have a wheat allergy and didn't know the store bought seasoning had wheat flour in it until I ate it and was in a world of pain for days. With this recipe, I could get something close to the taco brand I love while removing the flour that this recipe calls for. I just let the juice simmer down to the consistency that I like. So thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
This was okay. Only change was to use garlic granules instead of garlic salt. I don't know if it was the mix or if it was because I had to use store-bought meat for a change (we have our own) ... or maybe my spices are getting old ... but we really didn't taste much of anything. Ended up throwing some diced jalapeno peppers in to give is some kick. Not bad, just not knock your socks off. Don't really think it tastes like Taco Bell at all. Thanks so much for recipe, tho.
