very good taco seasoning, definitely beats those packages! I added 1/2 tsp cornstarch and 1/4 tsp coriander. I used this recipe with 1 lb of ground turkey and added about 2/3 C water with seasoning after browning meat.

This is the taco seasoning recipe that I always use, though I add corn starch if needed for the dish. I sometimes eave out the red pepper flakes, or substitute cayenne pepper, depending on mood.

Very, very tasty mix and has a bit of a spicy kick to it!! I haven't made tacos yet but I tasted it on a bit of cooked chicken. I always used less of the packaged mixes because of the high amount of salt they have.....sometimes the tacos were a bit bland because of that. Now they won't be!! My son also likes to sprinkle taco seasoning on popcorn. I did use only 1/2 the salt called for and I'm happy with that. Thanks for a great alternative to those salt-filled packages!! Added Note: Finally made tacos!! And they were flavorful! My son made them and he's now calling himself the "taco master"!!I'd advise anyone with "tender tastebuds" to use it at their own discretion and not just pour the whole mix into 1 lb. of meat since it is much stronger than the packaged mixes. Which is a good thing!!! You get more "bang for your buck"!! Also, anyone who doesn't like "heat" might want to lower the amount of red pepper flakes. It does have a kick!! I have already made the mix in multiples to store for future use and can't wait to use it in other recipes and dips! Thanks again!!
