This is a fantastic taco seasoning mix. I substituted homemade chili powder for bought to reduce the sodium greatly. Good recipe for this is #38558 by Dee514. Thanks for all the flavor...
Much better then the packages of taco seasoning Salt wise, but i still feel like the title and information on this page is misleading, 6 tablespoons of chili powder has enough sodium that it actually works out to be 75mg of sodium per teaspoon after everything is mixed together. which is almost double then what you have here saying its under 30mg per teaspoon. I made this anyway because the packet stuff is still 400mg+ per teaspoon and i am all about improving!
With over 600 mg of sodium, this recipe is ANYTHING but salt free.
