Our love for Mexican food inspired me to make party mix with taco seasoning. The flavor is so mild that it's even kid friendly. —Elizabeth Wynne, Aztec, New Mexico

"I subbed in goldfish for the popcorn because we can't have it here. It's a little bland to me. Maybe I'll try mixing cheesy taco with spicy ranch mix? It needed a little salt. It was basically a taco after taste - not as strong as I was expecting for all the seasoning mix used. Maybe a tsp of season salt?"
