  • Taco Seasoning Packet - need help!
    Can someone check a taco seasoning packet and tell me how many ounces is in it? I use Penzey's wonderful taco seasoning in the jar and may be able to measure it from the weight you give me.

    Thanks!

    measure...I never measure...but then I don't use those packets, I use Gebharts chili powder and just pour till I like the color...we tend to like our mexican food on the hotter side...and some of those seasoning packets have way to much sodium for me....

    Here's the recipe I'm going to make tomorrow with it. Since it was 100 degrees here today, I wanted to do the crockpot thing.

    A LIGHT CHICKEN CROCK POT MEAL!
    When we make this, we leave out the cornstarch and just
    throw everything in at the beginning and don't worry about
    measurements...it is great by itself, rolled in tortillas, or added
    over greens for a great salad...) ~Anne

    Well, I guess I could do that Shelley! I usually do with taco meat, etc, but wasn't sure how much to put on the chicken since it would be in the crockpot all day.

    seeing you are also adding salsa I would put in 2 teaspoons of seasoning...if it isn't hot enough when eating top with more salsa...

    recipe sounds good..will you serve with tortillas????

    I was thinking 2 tablespoons - we like things pretty spicey :)

    This was posted by September_Morn last year and I just dug it up under a crockpot chicken search. Waaaayyy easy, so that works for me!!

    Thanks Shelley.

    I made this for our supper tonight. I don't keep the taco seasoning packets. When we do taco meat I use salsa, chili powder, cumin, and chipolte. That's what I did with the chicken. I thought I had a full container of sour cream. Wrong, I had about 2 Tbsp. So I added a healthy spoonful of whipped cream cheese. This was a very easy and very good recipe. I'm going to try it with some round steak or cube steaks. Maybe even some pork chops. I think this will be a staple of the hot summer months. Carol
