Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Rating: 4.5 stars 298
This tastes very close to the taco seasoning favored by a very popular fast-food taco restaurant. You can make this at home, and let your family prepare tacos the way they like.

Taco Seasoning (without the chili powder)

Rating: 4.5 stars 85
Here is a recipe that uses only fundamental ingredients. Every other recipe I have found for taco seasoning has chili powder in it, which is a mix itself that has many of the same ingredients as taco seasoning, but in different proportions. This recipe takes chili powder out, but puts its ingredients and proportions back in. Now you have full knowledge and control of all of the ingredients. Adjust the red pepper to your heat preference. I would rate the heat level for this at around medium-hot, so adjust the red pepper as you see fit. I hope to see other variations spring out of this one.

Cliff's Hot Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 21
This is a quick and easy hot sauce my dad makes with canned tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, and spices. My mom had to go behind him to write down what he was tossing in. Charring the jalapeño peppers (optional) gives it that smokiness, and the jalapeño pepper seeds need to be added for heat.

Chef John's Grilled Mojo Beef

Rating: 5 stars 95
This Cuban-inspired mojo marinade would work great as an all-purpose marinade for just about anything destined for the grill, but skirt steak is my top choice.

Fajita Marinade

Rating: 4.5 stars 844
Delicious fajita marinade made with lime juice, olive oil, and soy sauce, and spiced up with cayenne and black pepper. Makes enough marinade for 2 pounds of meat.
