Loved it!! I followed it exactly except for the salt...no salt in our diets. It was a great taste on chicken breasts. Will keep this one and use it again!

Great seasoniing mix. I used it on chicken breasts. I cooked them under the broiler 5 minutes per side. They were delicious with this rub. I have included this rub with my new recipe for Chicken Enchiladas Ll's Favorite Chicken Enchiladas. I cut out the red pepper flakes because I can't take the heat. Made for PRMR

I used this on cubed chicken by browning in canola, draining and seasoning in the pan. I found that adding a bit of Tabasco (which is just red pepper and vinegar with a little salt) really brought home the flavor.

Loved this seasoning! I used it on some canned pinto beans to make tex-mex beans and they turned out great. It would be great on tacos or burritos also. Thanks for posting. Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap..

I made this seasoning to top turkey burgers as they are very lacking if not well seasoned. Then added it to the turkey chili I made for my parents the following night. Loved the flavor it gave both. I did cut my pinch of clove back to more like half a pinch as for some reason that is one spice that seems to overpower taste wise for me even in the smallest amount. I will definitely be picking up some spice jars so that I can always have this on hand in my cabinet. Thanks for sharing your recipe awalde. Made and reviewed for the 82nd AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

Loved this wonderful Mexican seasoning! I made as written, except that I used Mexican oregano and smoked paprika. I used this in ground beef tacos and we loved how well it seasoned the meat. I will not be buying the taco seasoning packets anymore. This tastes so much better and is cheaper, too. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

I gave this a trial run on my eggs this morning. Excellent, I loved the addition of cinnamon (used 1/2 tsp) and it has a good warm bite but that doesn't overpower the other flavors. I didn't use the salt as I prefer to add a bit of salt to what I cook without already having it in the seasonings. That gives me more control and helps lighten my salt intake.

I made this and rolled beef peices in it and then placed it in my croc pot for 6 hours - I shredded the meat and made tacos. EXCELLENT! Made for ZWT8, The Fearless Red Dragons.

I mixed this to use in Crockpot Chicken Quesadillas by Nif. I elected to not add the salt and still found it had loads of flavor. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
