    You should totally do it, Carrie! It's so simple to make. :)
    This recipe makes about 4tbsp of taco seasoning. I used 3 in the taco soup that I made but if you were using it to season say 1.5lb of ground meat, I'd say that 2tbsp would work so you would get two meals out of it.

    I think I'm going to have to try this. In the store bought packets you combine water with the meat and seasoning…do you eliminate the water and just season the meat? Thanks.
