    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! - 1/11/10

    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! - 5/26/09

    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! - 3/22/10

    It is great. I added a little more chili powder. I eat way too much sodium so this is perfect. - 3/26/11

    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!! - 6/7/09

  • Finally a very low sodium taco seasoning that tastes GREAT! Thank you! I also found 0 sodium corn taco shells and use 1/2 90% ground chuck and 1/2 chicken with this seasoning and it makes a great low sodium taco! Cheese is the biggest problem but I use sparingly. - 9/11/14

  • Taste is a bit light compared to what I am accustomed to, but definitely complemented the salad. Cost effective as well. Thanks - 7/25/14

  • I LOVE this seasoning and have used it exclusively for tacos and such for at least 2 years rather than going out and buying packets. The only thing I add to this is dried cilantro, for that extra flavor! - 8/15/13

  • 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! - 8/12/13
