    diner524's Note:

    This is a great way to make meat for tacos, burritos or nachos without having to purchase the taco seasoning!! This is a recipe from Taste of Home, that I changed slightly for our tastes.

      I made this tonight to go on our homemade nachos! It was delicious! I loved the flavor, but my husband thinks it overpowered the other items on the nachos. I think that might be because we had more meat than usual, and less "other toppings" than at most restaurants. Next time I'll cut back just a little for each amount of spice. Thanks so much for sharing! **Update: I use this recipe EVERY time I make something that needs mexican style beef! I love that you can use the same measuring spoon for all the spices (at least I do) and the amounts are simple and easy to remember. Sometimes I skip the cornstarch depending on what the beef is used for and I never miss it - great flavor even without a "sauce" consistency. Thanks again for sharing! This is a staple in our house. :)

      AWESOME!! I've tried other taco seasoning recipes from here and this one is the one for me from now on. Definitely not buying those packets anymore. I didn't have coriander and left out the cornstarch. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag Game 2013.

      I made this for tacos and it turned out great. I love making my own taco seasonings and this recipe did not disappoint. I will use it again. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8.
