YUMMY! I suggest putting the mix in an old plastic parmesan cheese shaker. That way you can sprinkle on as much as you want, or scoop it out of the other side. Plus the container holds a lot, and you can always see how much is left over.

I couldn't even finish two bites. I used this recipe to make taco meat for a salad. Even with ranch dressing, I felt like my lips were going to fall off from the heat! I've never had that problem with the store-bought kind. If you like really hot tacos, this is the recipes for you!

Excellent for ground beef or turkey. This tastes better than store bought. Is less salty and more flavorful. I have already prepared my second batch.

Can't mess this one up! I needed a mexican seasoning for chicken that would ultimately be shredded and go into a mexican casserole, so I made this only used onion powder, garlic poder, and omitted the cumin since I didn't have any. I was very loose with the measuring and it still turned out great. I threw in a dash of cayenne for some heat and my chicken turned out delicious. Can't screw this one up, people! :)

I've been making this seasoning mix for several years now and will never switch back to the store-bought packages. Stores well and tastes great!!

We really enjoy this recipe. I like to add a can of diced tomatoes, corn & black beans to the meat and seasoning when I prepare it.

This was an excellent recipe. I was in a crunch when I had already defrosted my meat and cut up the toppings for the tacos when I realized, no seasoning. I had everything I need for this recipe in my pantry which was great. I just added a little more salt. I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

FANTASTIC!!! My AUSSIE kids LOVE TACOS... so that has been the request for the past week... However I discovered that I didn't have a taco seasoning pkt in my pantry so as a last minute ditch I searched 'allrecipes' in hope that I would have the ingedients n my cupboards. Well, it was a success. In fact, all of my 3 children said that it was the BEST taco meat that they had ever had. Thank you!! Definately a WINNER at our house.
