This receipe was great. I have really hot chili powder so I had to add less than what it calls for and it needed salt. Thanks it's great to have this....I no longer have to buy it from the store.

Very close to packaged mixes; need to use a good chili powder (Penzey's, Gebhardt, Buena Vida)plus add a tsp. salt and 2/3 cup water; allow to simmer, then sit awhile to cool & for flavors to blend.

This is a great recipe. Has a great flavor to it. The only thing I would add is maybe about 2-3 tbsp of flour. Flour will give the meat that taco consistency without ruining the flavor. I have been making homemade tacos since I was about 9 years old and this is the best recipe.
