THE SEASONED COOK If you like some heat, add some red chili pepper flakes. Start with 1/8 tsp. and add more as desired. Substitute any green vegetable for the asparagus depending on what’s in season.

    So glad to have a recipe for taco seasoning….perfect.

  • Susan says:

    Yes, the average seasoning packet for 2 tacos has 20% of my daily amount for sodium. So, lose the sodium and keep the flavor I say!

  • Beverly says:

    Where’s the green vegie in this recipe? It says replace asparagus with any green vegie. Good recipe.
    Ortega now has lower sodium taco seasoning 40% less.( @ walmart)

  • Susan says:

    That’s great to know that some food manufacturers are paying attention to creating lower sodium, but we also have the major ingredients here or the diy taco seasoning that I’ve written about in this blog.It’s easy to do. Just read the ingredients and decide what to put in yours, depending on your taste buds.
