    This was good. I added 1/2 tsp salt to the mix. Then we used 3.5 tbsps with 3/4 cup of water to 1lb of beef. I felt it needed a bit more, so I added 1/2 tbsp dried minced onion and 1/4 tsp-ish of garlic salt to the beef. Perhaps fresh onion would be nice in the future. Anyway, it was all to go with rice and beef and red pepper in a burrito, and it was definitely yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    I used this just like I would packaged taco seasoning. I also added a little dried minced onion during cooking. This was great for seasoning ground turkey and shredded chicken!

    I used this taco seasoning mix to season some ground beef to use in a taco salad. It was great. Thanks Dancer 🙂 Made for Cookbook tag game

    I thought this mix was great and filled in, in a pinch. I did add a bit of salt, as I felt it needed it, but that is just my taste. I used a pinch of corn starch, as a thickening agent. Next time I find myself out of the package mixes, I’ll remember this one! Thanks, Dancer^.

    This is a healthy and quick way to have taco seasoning, as most of us have these items on hand. Doubled the garlic and onion powders, and added oregano to it. Also subbed chipotle powder and used much more.

    Made as posted but used “smoked” paprika and no cayenne pepper. Made especially to use in Tijuana Train Wreck (isn’t that a fun name?) I will keep a small jar of this in my pantry from now on; much healthier and very tasty! Thanks for posting Dancer^. Made for When It’s Hot Tag Game.

    This taco seasoning was EXCELLENT!!!!!! I have a million and 1 allergies and can never use the store bought package taco seasoning. I tried this with Crock Pot Taco Soup Crock Pot Taco Soup and it was fab. I will add this in my list of favorites. A real keeper…
