    This is the best taco seasoning recipe I've found. My husband has a kidney problem, so I leave out the sea salt, since he can't really have any. That's the only change I make in the recipe, but it still tastes fantastic. I can't count the number of times I've used this recipe for taco nights.  -  10 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    As good, if not better than the purchased taco seasoning.  -  04 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent flexible recipe. No more packets for me! Allows you to adjust the "kick" for adults or children. While we made Tacos tonight, I can see it being excellent as a rub, or a marinade. Planning on trying it as a marinade for chicken next! Thanks for providing us with an easy, great recipe!  -  30 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
