very good mix, i used this as the base because i like to add cumin to my taco seasoning, and absolutely loved the cinnamon in it
I enjoy cinnamon in my chili and my chocolate, so I thought I would give this a shot. I did like the flavor, but I missed the "taco" taste I am used to that comes from a packet. I did like that this only has three carbs per serving with no preservatives, msg, or artificial flavors. I will be trying a few other recipes though in search of the "taco" taste I want.
I disliked the cinnamon flavor. I thought it would be interesting, yet it did not work for me.
I was a little suspicious of using cinnamon in the mix but found that I liked it very much. I agree -- I love the fact there's no MSG and tons of salt. I will be making this one again. Made for Zaar I Recommend Tag Game 2011.
Love money saving recipes and this is a wonderful one. Made as written and have to admit the cinnamon while good is a little strong. Will definitely be making again. Used as the base seasoning for tostados. Thanks for the post.
What a brilliant alternative to the packet mixes! I wasn't sure if the recipe was for 1 package of seasoning (which I assumed) or 1 person. I made the recipe exactly as written with 1lb of ground beef and found the flavour wonderful but a little weak, so I threw in a bit more of each ingredient and it was amazing! I agree the cinnamon really works- it smells wonderful as it cooks and gives the mix an earthy flavour. BF usually rates 1 star lower than me and very rarely gives 5 stars. For this recipe he said "You even need to ask? 5 stars, duh", so that's gotta be good!
I was intrigued by the use of cinnamon in this and just had to try it! Well, I can tell you that it works! I like the heat level of this and can't think of anything that I would change. I also like that you made this for one serving so I can just make some up when I need it. Made for Zaar Stars. Thanks LARavenscroft! :)
This is awesome stuff - I'm so glad to be able to make this at home now with so much more flavour and no MSG! I love the combination of different flavours that you can never make out from the packaged stuff! Thanks, LAR! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
For ease and convenience alone this recipe gets 5 stars - sure beats having to buy it at the grocery store. The cinnamon is a bit unusual but adds to the flavour in a good way. Made for Went to the Market tag.
Excellent mix. Much less expensive than commercial mixes. It's great that it makes the equivilant of just one package.
