Reviews forTaco Seasoning Mix
"My go-to for taco seasoning. I love this recipe, but I totally omit the salt because of dietary restrictions."
"Shoulda paid more attention to the reviews. WAAAAY too salty. Perhaps it should have been 3 teaspoons rather than 3 tablespoons. Throwing out the rest of the batch. May try it again with MUCH less salt."
"My whole family loved this taco seasoning mix. I used half the salt, used garlic powder instead of dried minced and ground red pepper instead of the flakes. It has a lot of flavor and just the right amount of kick. Added bonus - it doesn't have that garish red/orange color of the store bought packaged kind."
"Citric acid is a good replacement for 90% of the salt used. Just gives a slight lemon flavor, which I love anyway. I also use less critic acid than I did salt a lot. Not a lot of difference in price, really good for salt problems."
"great alternative to store brands - will make it again, but I also cut down on the salt"
"I've tried a lot of different seasoning recipes for tacos and this is the only one that my kids like."
"YUCK. This was horribly salty. I would never make it again."
"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."
