    It was perfect and so convenient that I had all of the spices in the cupboard.

    way too salty. In an attempt to eat healthier, we made this with ground turkey. I've used turkey for tacos before with store bought seasoning. My family had no clue that time. This time, it didn't change the color of the meet enough to fool them and the turkey taste is there underneath tons of salt.
    made this on the fly because i didn't have any and it is so much better than the store bought brand! it was super easy to make.

    Tastes great! Would definitely make again. I added a bit more flavor with salsa and cayenne pepper.
    Awesome! Muy Bueno! I will never purchase store bought taco seasoning again. Love the heat and smokiness when combined with the ground beef.
