When the description says mild, that was an understatement. When mixed with one pound of meat, this barely seasoned the taco meat. If you ate the meat by itself, you could pick up a hint of flavor. When mixed in with the rest of the taco ingredients (shell, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, and cheese), you couldn't taste the meat at all.

I find that I agreed with broach6 and felt that it was missing something. On the whole, it was a good beginning, but I found that I needed to definitely add the salt. (I thought perhaps I could get away with leaving out the salt.) I also increased the chili powder by 1/2 t, and added 1/2 t of cumin, 1/2 t garlic powder, 1/2 t onion powder. I feel that it rounded out the flavors while keeping it mild.

Way too much paprika, and seems to be missing something.

I needed a packet and didn't feel like running out. I also needed it to be mild for a specific guest and after reading the four ingredients I thought this would be a match and it was. Very mild but perfect seasoning for those who don't want a lot of kick. I made it with the salt as written but may try the garlic salt next time. Great savings and no extra additives. Thanks for sharing this replacement Deb's recipes!
Enjoy! ChefDLH

This is a great replacement for the "packets" we normally would use. Good point regarding MSG, read your labels carefully. I checked mine after reading this comment and found mine was free of MSG.

We are in the middle of an ice/snow storm and I needed a pack of taco seasoning for Creamy Burrito Casserole and I wasn't driving anywhere :) This worked out perfectly. Loved this and will be using more often. I followed the recipe as written using the salt instead of the garlic salt.

Great stuff - easy, cheap, healthy. I love it has no MSG or other unhealthy stuff. I used Garlic Powder in place of the salt and it worked great. It's a keeper. Thanks for sharing it !
