This is a great starter base, however I think it needed to be more spicy so I added 1/4 tsp (approx.) of ground cayenne pepper. I also added some dried minced onion as well. One batch seasoned 2 lbs. of ground beef. To this I added about 2 cups of water and about 3 Tbsp. of cornstarch as a thickener. Simmered it for a few minutes over low heat, tastes better than store bought. Thanks for posting.

Yummo! I used this on sweet potato fries that I baked in the oven and it came out great! Love the no sugar part of it and I don't have to buy those packets anymore from the store. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2010.

Fantastic! I was skeptical because other mixes I've tried never seem to turn out the way I want. SO yummy - it made my "tamale pie" a success!

Wonderful blend...Recommended to me by NELady playing the "I Recommend Tag Game"...for a girl who likes spicy food and Mexican flavors it is strange that I have never had taco seasoning before...but I found this little gem just as I happened to have it jotted on my shopping list as a must to pick up- well so much better to make my own instead...I made a double batch and added the extra heat :)- So far, used it in a raw chili recipe and sprinkled it on popcorn...wondering how I have gotten along without it all this time {{lol}}-Thanks Tons -YUM!! :)- a new staple in my pantry!!

I can't believe I haven't rated this taco seasoning (considering I use it all the time). It has GREAT flavor, and I feel good about using it because it doensn't have any sugar or cornstarch or flour so common in other taco seasonings. Right this second, in fact, there is a jar of this in my spice cabinet. I always make 4-5 times the amount written and keep it in an airtight spice jar so it can be used any time. Delicious! Thanks so much for posting!

Excellent! This is so much better than any premade packet at the grocery store. I used this on ground turkey on a taco salad.

Thank you so much for this recipe! I have used it over chicken when baking and also with ground beef for making taco salads. I try to always keep a batch on hand.

Simple to make. Delish. Sugar Free. Low Carb. what else can you ask for? The other thing that is good about this recipe is you can add a little more or less of any of the ingredients to suit your personal taste.
