    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

    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

    I don't use taco seasoning, I make my own blends of seasonings for whatever recipe I am making. This is fairly close to a seasoning blend I have for pork and steak though. Instead of Oregano I use Italian seasoning though~ - 4/28/19

  • If you want to kick this up a notch, try adding a quarter teaspoon of African Bird Pepper. WARNING, it's hot. Very Hot. But by the time it gets mixed in with the rest of the seasoning and then mixed into your food, it's still spicy without being crazy hot
