MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 24, 2014

great alternative to store brands - will make it again, but I also cut down on the salt

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 23, 2014

I've tried a lot of different seasoning recipes for tacos and this is the only one that my kids like.

MY REVIEW

YUCK. This was horribly salty. I would never make it again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2012

I needed a low sodium taco mix and made with only 1 TBSP salt instead of 3. It was much better than the packaged stuff and cheaper too. Will keep this recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 12, 2011

My family agrees that they would rather have this seasoning for taco meat instead of buying the packets at the store. A great money saving idea for the person who always has these ingredients on hand.
