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.

I love this recipe, I have been using it for many years. Give it a try, no chemicals, great alternative to buying the mixes.

Instead of cayenne, I used 1 tsp Zatarain's Cajun seasoning. I also added 2 tsp Lawry's seasoned salt. With my additions, I will never buy taco seasoning packets again. This was perfect.

If you like to add a bit of water like the instructions on the packaged mix state (I always add about 1/8 to 1/4 cup water), add a couple tablespoons flour to this recipe. It makes the meat moist and saucy.

I forgot to pick up the seasoning packets at the store, so I found this recipe after a google search. It turned out that I will be using this recipe instead of the seasoning packets from now on.
