"I like having this recipe, because I can control how hot I want my taco meat. I added 4 teaspoons to ground chicken, and it was just spicy enough for my soft tacos. My husband enjoyed this recipe."

"Excellent! I don't think I'll ever buy packaged taco seasoning again. I used a real onion and left out the 4 tbsp of dried minced onion. Also, I added a little more cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes to add some spice. So good!!!"

"Perfect! I had all these spices on hand, but not a packet of taco seasoning! Tastes just like a $1.25 packet!!"
