Nice mix. I used this in burritos and was very happy with it. However, salt fanatic that I am I think I would half it next time. Thanks! I'll use this one again!

This was great! I've tried a few other taco seasoning recipes, but this one has been the best one so far. Lots of flavour and great blend of spices. Thanks!

This was great! My DH is on a low sodium diet now, so pretty much anything in a package is off limits. But I thought this was fabulous, even with only using half the sea salt! The red pepper flakes made it a bit too hot for the kids, so I'll leave those out next time. They kept saying, "These are the best tacos you've ever made, Mom!-but they're really HOT!" then shoveling them in and guzzling milk. lol I added a 1/2 tsp of cornstarch to it, then simmered the meat with 3/4 cup water. I really like that it makes the perfect amount to just throw in the meat, like a package would be.

This is perfect! My whole family loved it and the flavor was fantastic. I made as is except I left out the red pepper flakes.My daughter has a low tolerance for spicy heat but it still was so flavorful!

This recipe saved me when I realized that I didn't have taco seasoning on hand. I had everything in my spice cabinet and it tasted great. Thank you :)

Delicious and easy- I will never buy the packaged stuff again. I do have one question- how much of this is equal to a store bought packet? Thanks for sharing!

Good combination of flavours albeit that it needed a bit more heat. The first time I used it just as stated and made a chicken meatloaf. Then I realized that we wanted it more spicy so the next time I used it (made a chili) I added 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, that gave it just the taste we wanted. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC, Fall 2009.

I made this to go with your extremely delicious Ground Beef Burritos, but then I completely forgot to rate the seasoning mix. This taco seasoning is wonderful, much better than the store varieties. Thanks!

You saved the day, Brandess! I was in the middle of making Chicken-Ranch Tacos when I realized I did not have any store packaged taco seasoning! I of course, ran straight to the computer and RecipeZaar and did a search. Lo and Behold, this wonderful recipe came up and saved our chicken tacos! This is a wonderful recipe! The best part is that it only makes the same amount called for in one package of packaged taco seasoning! None to store away to forget I had saved some ; ) I will always make this fresh and will never buy store packaged taco seasoning again! Perfect! I would not change a thing! Thanks so much, Brandess!
