    This looks great! A quick question: How much would you consider a “package,” such as a recipe would call for? It would not be good to overdo the amount! Thanks!

    That’s something I should have included in my post. 🙂

    About 2 Tablespoons will be roughly equivalent to a “package”.

    Thanks for the recipe! I use a lot of taco seasoning (we eat a lot of homemade Mexican food) and taco seasoning is expensive!

    I’ve been using a similar recipe for years; the main difference is that mine includes some flour, which I like because, when added with water, it thickens up into a nice sauce. I think the homemade seasoning tastes better – now that I am used to it I think the packets have a chemicalish taste to them.
