MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 14, 2012

This recipe was awesome! These are all ingredients I always have on hand. It was so much better (and healthier) than those taco seasoning packets you get from the grocery store. I've tried several homemade taco seasoning recipes, but this is my favorite one. Next time I will substitute ground turkey for the ground beef.
