    We had tacos last night for dinner. Tacos are a big favorite in our house. I’m definitely making this seasoning mix to try next time we have have tacos. Do you add any water when mixing with the meat?

  4. Jacqueline Ferri says:

    Yes I have been making my own taco seasoning mix and what a difference !!! I will have to try this recipe which is slightly different . I also add organic cornstarch to thicken up a bit.

    What a cute thing to jar, bag with string, or just doll up with fall raffia and give away!! Who doesn’t love taco seasoning? Love Mary Janes Farm!!

    I made this when it first came out. I am not one for a lot of seasoning so I used less than the 1/4 cup per pound of meat. I am also super sensitive to spicy foods, this was perfect the way I used it with less seasoning. In fact, I just now made more. I tripled the recipe, twice. I am sending the recipe and the mix to 4 of my friends. I made enough that each of them had 1/2 cup. Thanks for sharing this!
