This was the closest to the Ortega brand we use and like so well. I used a whole clove of garlic. It was a bit hot for my youngest so will have to tone it done just a bit. But this is definitely the seasoning I'll use from now on.

I have used this recipe for over a year now. It's my only "go to" for tacos. I prepare it in bulk so it's always ready to go, no prep time. Love it.

Made this tonight, TRUE!
What a delight to have a seasoning with NO SUGAR in it too!
Added extra chilli flakes, 1 canned tinned tomatoes (no sugar), 1 cup water, 1 cup no salt/sugar tomato paste and cannelloni beans...WHOO HOO! Thank you!
