I am looking for a recipe for the seasoning packets like Kraft, McCormics or Schillings. I like the convience of just chopping the tomatoes and onions and adding the dry mix.
All of our stores here have quit carrying them so I thought some of you good cooks might just have a recipe to share. Or maybe even a clone.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Here are the ingredients in a McCormick packet, if this helps any:
Lawry's Taco Spices & Seasoning Mix
1 Tbl. flour
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. minced onion
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. ground oregano
Combine all ingredients in small bowl.
To prepare the meat filling for the tacos, use these instructions from the original pagage:
In large skillet, brown 1 pound ground beef until crumbly; drain fat. Add spices and seasoning and 2/3 cup water, mix thoroughly. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, and cook, uncovered, 7 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon meat filling into warmed taco shells or tortillas. Top with shredded lettuce, grated cheddar cheese and chopped tomato. Use fresh salsa and guacamole if desired. Makes meat filling for 12 tacos (about 3 tablespoons each).
This looks like a GREAT site for Spice Mix recipes!!
Thanks for the website.
Thanks for all your help.
Sugarbug that web site is great. I have it saved and will be a frequent visitor. They did have a salsa mix that sounds good and I have it made up and ready to try tomorrow as I like fresh toms the best.
The taco seasoning sounds good too will be trying it soon.
Catloverlora-Thanks for the ingredient info and your suggestions on what you do, sounds good. I am lazy and like to just dump a packet into the toms. I used to use McCormicks but our local stores have stopped stocking it.
You're Welcome, Brenda & Leisa! I was searching the net trying to find you some Salsa mix recipes and just came across it! I haven't had time to go back through it yet, just saved it to my "favorites".
Have a nice night!
Not sure if this would help you or not, its not a
recipe, but instead a great mix for about .70 cents
a portion. We use it for more than just Salsa.
Its called JD's Salsa Seasoning Mix. A large
quart size jar 25-30 servings for 20 dollars. They
do sell online. I will leave it to you to do a quick search,
since I am not sure leaving a link on the forum is allowed.
