  1. What timing!!! I lost my recipe for both and had just run out! Since we were heading to town tomorrow for our monthly shopping trip I was getting ready to start the search all over again!! Looking forward to making up a batch of tortillas this weekend as well.

  2. I just found your site via foodgawker.com. I love the layout and pictures. I’m looking forward to making the taco seasoning mix as we use it pretty regularly and I know the store bought stuff is full of sodium and nasty things. Thanks for sharing your stuff!

  3. I can’t wait to try these!! I have been dumping a little of each component in my recipes trying to get the result w/o the junk that comes in the pre-made mixes—with inconsistant results (hhhmmm go figure!) I will have to add some ground ancho too though!! yum!

  4. What a great idea. I will have to make up a batch of both of these when I run out of the store bought stuff.

    Do you happen to have a recipe for pot roast — like you get in the packages?
