Found this recipe for taco seasonings one day when I was in the mood for tacos and had no packaged seasoning. I used 3 Tablespoons for 1 lb. of hamburger and the results were very tasty. I also liked the fact that it has less sodium than the packaged mix.

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.

I added 3 Tbs. to 1 lb. of ground beef, it was good but I like it a little more spicy so I added a few shakes of Mrs. Dash; Southwest Chipotle no salt seasoning. mmm good Best Taco I have had since I have been on this low sodium diet. Thank You for this recipe. 5 Stars.

I guessed and used this for one pound of meat. I was right. This recipe equals one store bought package.

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!!!

I think this tastes even better than the stuff sold at stores. More flavorful, without that weird dayglo orange color. WIN!!!
