Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This was delicious. A great alternative to a taco seasoning packet. For those trying it for the first time, remember that it is lacking sodium, so it's not going to taste the same as the packet, but it's exactly the same minus the salt. It's yummy! Submitted by:

Very good. It work well with ground turkey and leftover chicken too. Salt is not needed at all.

I get so frustrated with all the sodium in packaged taco seasoning - this is SO much better & tastes great! I add in some water to help the seasoning absorb into the meat. Plan on making it in bulk for the winter months! Submitted by:

I have tried this seasoning recipe twice now - once for myself at home and once for a nachos potluck at work. It got rave reviews and compliments from everyone at work, and I love that it's salt-free! Submitted by:

It is great. I added a little more chili powder. I eat way too much sodium so this is perfect. Submitted by:

I made soft Taco's tonight and decided to make this seasoning because the store version is so high in sodium. This is the BEST Taco Seasoning I have ever tasted!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Submitted by:

Perfect! I didn't have ground oregano, so used flakes. Subbed smoked paprika for the paprika. Added 1/2 tsp chipotle powder for heat. Used to make fajitas. Sauteed veggies, added 1 tbsp mix & 1/4 water. Did same with chicken. Sprinkled with Morton's Lite Salt and pepper. Awesome! Submitted by:

This is so great - it tasted just like the store-bought type, except without the dreaded "sodium overload dry mouth syndrome"! Thanks for sharing it Submitted by:

This worked really well. I used it with the Baja Fish Taco recipe. It's nice to be able to enjoy tacos without all the sodium. Submitted by:

This mix of seasoning tastes just like the packets of taco seasoning, without leaving me parched from salt overload! :-) No one in my family even realized that I had changed up our tacos! Submitted by:

This was the second low sodium/home-made recipe for taco seasoning that I've tried...and this one was far better, and had less calories! Submitted by:

This is the only taco seasoning we use now. I make it in larger batches and keep in a sealed container--you would use 3 tablespoons per pound of meat. We add just a little kosher salt at the end of cooking to bring out the flavors. So much better (and better for you) than the packets! Submitted by:

Thanks for the recipe I'm going to try this and will come back and provide my rating. I have had to skip a lot of good recipes I have found simply because the sodium mostly because of the taco packet was way too high. Submitted by:

I have been using this for years! Anything that I want to put a spicy feel to I put it on. Steak is one of Fave.. Rub it in and then cook as usual! It makes the steak so good I save calories by not using A1!! Submitted by:

Graet recipe! Used it as the seasoning for the Slow Cooker Chicken Salsa (on SparkRecipies) and it turned out great. I am so happy to have a low-sodium substitute! Submitted by:

Very good base recipe for the seasoning. I added a lil red peper flakes because like the other commenter, I like it spicy. Be careful of the Chili powders, they are NOT created equal and some have more sodium than the others (I was shocked when I read the labels on some). Submitted by:

Sounds like a great substitute-- hubbie is on a major low sodium diet, and he loves Mexican food. This will make cooking for him much easier. Submitted by:
