    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
