  • I searched other Taco Bell copy cat recipes and they required different ingredients I did have in my pantry. I put in another tsp. of vinegar and a tiny bit of cumin. Also I didn't have cayenne pepper, so I put 2 tbsp of pepper flakes. Next time I will use 1 tbsp pepper flakes. A little too hot. - 9/23/12
