Made ground beef tacos yesterday for a Saturday lunch using this taco seasoning, and we really enjoyed them. I didn't have "hot" smoked paprika on hand, so just used regular smoked paprika, and this seasoning had just the right of kick for us. Read More

I made this as listed except for the chili powder. I only had dark chili powder so I used that. I suspect that the only difference there might have been color perhaps... The recipe was a hit at the house as all the leftover taco meat was gone by the next day! Read More

The first time I tried out this recipe I knew I would be replacing the taco seasoning recipe I had been using for years. The hot smoked paprika and coriander really make it stand out. I also mixed up a large batch of this and used it as my holiday gift for my co-workers. Read More

I made this per the recipe but I don't stock 'hot smoked paprika'. I liked it but it didn't have the zing I wanted. The coriander was a nice addition. Read More

I grew up on package taco seasoning and have always enjoyed it, but wanted to better control the ingredients. This was excellent. No more packaged mix for us! Read More
