    This is my favorite taco seasoning recipe I modified it by using onion salt rather than powder and added Chipotle chili powder 1tsp to the mix Next time I will add 2 tsp of the Chipotle

    Made it as listed, but halved the salt and it came out great (used 1.25lbs of ground chuck and used 2Tbs of this mix with it, plus 8oz of tomato sauce…big hit) sealed the remainder in an air tight mason jar for the future. No more store bought taco seasoning for us.

    WAY TOO MUCH CUMIN!!! Otherwise I thought it was pretty good. 1 teaspoon cumin is sufficient.

    We have been using this for about a year now. 100 times better than store bought!

    Make it all the time! I double the salt, as I only use about 1/3 (2tbsp) of the recipe at a time for 1lb of ground beef.

    Very good. I made a double batch and have half saved for next time. I substituted Mexican oregano for regular Mediterranean oregano and cut down on the salt. We’ll make again!

    This is the best combination of spices for tacos! It's not too strong or hot, but just right. My family loves it!! ❤

    Amazing mix! I can use it even on ground pork and it tastes exactly like it does in restaurants with beef.

    Delicious, but if you don't like spice, hold off on the chilli powder 😊

    It was great! So much flavor. I added a bit more cumin because it's my favourite. Would use this recipe again.

    Didn't have onion powder, so i chopped one medium white onion instead. Also left out the chili powder in case the guests didn't like spice as much as i do. Turned out perfect.

    This turned out perfectly! I added more salt to taste and chopped onions mid through cooking the ground beef. Family loved it! Even my mom who does not like tacos.

    Made half portion & only had onion salt so used that rather than onion powder & kosher salt. Also had regular chili powder. Yummy! Will definitely make again.
