    Absolutely the best taco seasoning. Completely homemade and fresh. Definitely keeping this recipe.  -  12 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I discovered how much better and cheaper “make your own” taco seasoning is a few years back when I went to grab a packet out of the pantry to learn that I was out. I have always used Allrecipes ‘Taco Seasoning 1’ and thought I’d try this one for something different. I think the other recipe has more flavor so will go back to it. This one is good and the ingredients are things most people have on hand, and it would be easy to alter for personal taste.  -  05 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Perfect. I omit salt, cayenne and red pepper flakes and add these in when finishing the ground beef, according to the tastes of those eating the meal.  -  02 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
