    1. Mix chilli powder, cumin, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion granules, oregano and cayenne together in a small bowl.
    2. Cook turkey mince in a large nonstick pan over medium heat, stirring to break up clumps, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chilli powder mixture and water. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
    3. Stir cider vinegar and brown sugar into the pan. Simmer until flavours combine, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl.

    Very nice, easy to make and we had it in jacket poatoes. A healthy option for dinner  -  10 Jul 2017


    I made this tonight. I didn’t think it was possible to make taco seasoning at home. I grew up thinking it only came in a package from the store. Wow was I in for a pleasant surprise! This recipe was better than ANY package from the store. The best part is I substituted Stevia for the sugar and it still turned out amazing. I used cabbage leaves as a taco instead of an actual taco, but it was awesome! Thanks for the recipe whoever you are.  -  16 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Loved! Super tasty, very easy, I had all ingredients in my pantry. I didn’t change a thing and it is definitely a do-over. Initially I thought it would be too spicy for my kids but after adding all ingredients for a big fat taco, it was perfect. My picky kids lapped it up. Different taste than your typical taco seasoning. I’m a fan.... thank you for the recipe!  -  05 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
