This is exactly what I was looking for! My wife and I tried it last night and were very impressed. As other reviewers have said, we'll never buy taco seasoning again! The nice thing about this recipe too is the ability to adjust how hot it is, based on how much of the "hotter" spices you want to put in! Very nice. I didn't have the onion or the garlic, so I just used onion powder and garlic powder. Still tasted great!!! The only thing I would change is the amount of salt. Next time I think I'll put half the amount, but that's just my preference! Thanks for this recipe!

Easy and flexible. We used this with recipe '253781' - Mexican Sweet Potatos and with both beef and veggie tacos. We used a third less salt than called for and didn't miss it.

Very tasty! Will be using this from now on instead of the packaged taco seasoning.

Wat a fabulous substitue to package seasoning! Very, very good. The only thing I did differently was cut back a little on the salt. It came out perfect. No more packet seasoning for me! Will use this from now on!

Very good. I made triple the recipe for two pounds of burger but only used 1/4 teaspoon of red peppers but followed the rest of the recipe as written. Everyone really enjoyed this. I will be using this again.

We've been using this for a while now. (Sorry it took so long!) It's wonderful! WAY better than any brand of packaged seasoning. I make it exactly as written and it's perfect. I make a triple batch and store it in a spice jar. There is only 2 of us, so when I need taco seasoning for a recipe that's not tacos, (like Taco Avocado Wraps by looneytunesfan) I don't always need a whole envelope. I love that I can now measure out exactly what I need. Not only is this more convenient, but tastier too!

Love this! Perfect blend. I used a fresh garlic clove and a pinch of dried parsley as well.

Great! I made this after realizing that I was out of taco seasoning mix. My teenage son loved the meat and asked what was different. It used all the seasonings I already have on hand so that was easy. I will definitely make again. Thanks for posting!
