Very tasty! Usually we have leftovers but not this time! I left out the coriander because I didn't have any, but it was still great.

Yum! So easy and very, very much better than those awfully salty packets they sell. And for extra freshness, I used fresh coriander leaves. Thanks! I'll make them over and over again!

Wow! I just finished eating this and it's absolutely yummy and SO easy to make. I made it exactly - just minus the hot sauce. It is the perfect blend of spices - it's not overpowering or bland and WAY better than the taco seasoning packets. I probably have about 10 of those in my cupboard and I'm wondering what to do with them now :) I'm sure I will be making this frequently! Thanks for posting!

Delicious!! I used ground turkey, sauteed it with a diced onion, cut the coriander in half, and increased the cumin & chili powder (we like things spicy). Served in whole-wheat tortillas with cheese, lettuce, sour cream, hot sauce & Spicy Guacamole. DH proclaimed this the "best" taco meat I've made. :) Thanks!

It's different than the other tacos. Must be the coriander. Thanks!

Very good!!! Much better then the packets. My family gobbled the tacos up and only left me one. Thank you so much.

Loved the concept, but the seasoning blend wasn't quite right for us. It was good, but next time I'll tweak the spices. Thank you for posting this. It's a great idea.

Jackieblue, I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I can't believe how good the sauce was! It's the first time I've ever tried coriander, and WOW! Beautiful flavor, almost like a subtle lemon-pepperish taste, accompanied by the smoky flavor of cumin -- MUCH better than the "Old Elpaso" taco seasoning I'd tried before...Even my 7 year old (who proclaims to dislike tacos) loved this, and even asked me if he could have a little more of the sauce to eat without the taco shell! (I added hot sauce to mine only, because the kids don't like it -- but it was a great addition!) Thank you for sharing this...It's a keeper! :)

I made this a while back but forgot to review it. It was very good & easy to make. We make tacos a lot in our house so I'm always looking for ways to change it up. Thanks for posting!

I used to rely on packaged mixes for our taco meals until my granddaughter needed a low salt diet. This recipe fit the bill perfectly. Even if sodium isn't an issue in the future this will still be my "go to" for tacos!

Tacos from Scratch (Way Better Than a Packet and Just As Easy!)
