  • My husband LOVES my tacos and tostadas. I forgot to buy my taco bell seasoning at the store and immediately went to the internet. After the search this was the first site that came up. How quick was that?! Thank you!

  • Had a receipe that called for taco seasoning. Had the hamburger all browned and alas - no taco seasoning. Thanks for saving the day!!!

  • Same thing happened to me. Got the hamburger browned, went to the taco seasoning mix! Searched internet for "taco seasoning recipe" and up came your site. Thanks!!!

  • This is really very good! I had all the fixings for a "Mexican Mash" layered dish but was missing taco seasoning mix for the beef. Your recipe worked like a charm. Thanks!

  • I, too, was out of taco seasoning at home, and found this recipe. I loved it! I will never buy store packages again!

  • We have a child who is allergic to gluten--every taco seasoning mix I could find, even in the health food stores, contained "maltodextrose" (whatever that is), which contains gluten.  Thank you for giving us real taco seasoning without the "extras".

  • Me too!! Went to the store, bought the meat, cheese etc. Forgot the seasoning. Looked on the net & here it was! Delicious! Both my husband & I really like it. A money saver too as I already have ingredients at home. Thanks.

  • Cool. All ready to make tacos tonight and no taco seasoning. Did the internet search and *poof* your site came up. And I had all the ingredients to make you recipe! Thanks.

  • Thanks for your recipes. We've just been put on a sodium restricted diet. Most of the packaged foods are LOADED with salt. By using yours, I can eliminate the salt and pump up the other seasonings and we can still eat the foods we love.

  • Thanks so much for your recipe. I'm on a low-carb diet, and can't have the packet mix! You saved the day!

  • I discovered today that I did not have any taco seasoning mix, went to the internet and found your recipe. The only ingredient I did not have was flour but it still turned out wonderfully. Thanks.

  • Just like everyone else I was tired of being ripped off for the taco seasoning when each time I make them I need 3 packets! I have 4 international students that board with me and this is a huge saving. Thanks!
