"This was great, I was looking for something to replace the packet taco seasoning. I did not microwave the meat, I cooked the usual way in a frying pan, then drained, then added the seasonings and wat..." See moreer and let that cook on low for about 10 minutes. This will replace the store bought stuff! Thank you"

I went easy on the..." See more cayenne and next time will reduce the salt a bit as well. Thought it was okay as is, but thought it needed more depth of flavor.
