    One batch is approximately equal to one packet of taco seasoning, so it will season about 1 lb of meat. No mystery ingredients, no carbs... No reason to buy those packets anymore.  -  05 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Thank you! Just what I was looking for. Those packets are way too salty for me. The recipe gave me the ingredients and ratios. I adjusted the amounts to my liking , meaning more garlic. I quadrupled it and added 2 teaspoons of brown sugar. Very good!  -  03 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make, better than store bought, and cheaper!  -  31 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
