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.

Like the fact is salt free, But this was not the recipe for me, Used 3 Tablespoons of chilli powder (EXTRA HOT) instead of six, This IS a good combination of a mix, When I make tacos, add 3/4 cup water x 2, Add two teapsoons of this mixture too! With 500g mince, 2 cans 400g chopped tomatoes including juice, Then I let the whole thing reduce, Add 40 g tomato paste, Let it simmer for 20 minutes THEN I taste, Like last review, I added salt too, Also a pinch of Splenda as it had an acidic taste too! Coriander is my herb of choice for tacos too, It wasn't bad, but not sure would make again, TRUE! Sorry :) Thanks!

This had nice flavor but no indication of how much to use. I ended up using 3 teaspoons with a half pound of hamburger. To bring out the flavors a bit more, I added about 1/4 teaspoon salt, but that was mainly because I wasn't sure how much seasoning to use. I also ended up adding 1 teaspoon corn starch to 1/3 cup water to have a bit of sauce to simmer in. The moisture did simmer completely off.

This has a really nice flavor, and without all the sodium of the packaged mixes. Thanks for posting.

I have made this alot and I LOVE it. The seasoning works in so many dishes - and being on a low sodium diet - normal mixes are out. This is by far the best mix I have found! Thanks L DJ! Sams

This taco seasoning was way too hot for us. We plan to try it again with less chile powder
