dried onion flakes

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!
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!
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.
Worked perfectly in my seven layer dip. Thickened up the taco meat "juice" perfectly.
Doesn't really taste like Taco Bell. You would have to use the actual brands that they use to make it perfect, But this is good!!!
I used this for taco meat tonight, and it was very good. It was just a little too salty, so I'll cut back just a bit next time. I'm out of white sugar, so had to use brown sugar. And I only put a sprinkle of cayenne and then a sprinkle of black pepper so it wouldn't be too spicy for my son. My son gave it a thumbs up.
Awesome!! That's really all I can say to that, it sums it up. :)
This was really good. I used garlic pepper (which contains salt) instead of garlic salt because that's all I had. I left out the cayenne because I used the garlic pepper and was making these for my kids who don't like anything spicy. The garlic pepper made it "spicy" enough for them. I will use this recipe again.
