Me too. I like that I can count on that particular taste. When I mix my own, it never comes out the same. I like the flavor of the cheapest packet, then add chili powder for chili.

My DH mixes up his own. He worked out the recipe from the ingredient list on the packets and some experimentation. He has the recipe written out so it is the same every time. We can only get the packets in a "taco kit".

Especially with the signature line you have. "If you don't like chicken fried steak, then I don't like you."
You don't see the correlation?

The separate packets are sold where the gravy mixes are, usually near the canned or jarred gravies. Packets for spaghetti, chili, gravies and taco seasoning are all there.

Of course with hubby making his own mix you wouldn't need these, but just so you know, just in case.

Thanks. I didn't think of that. I can't remember seeing those other packets either. I guess I theoretically knew they existed. They are probably with the spices.

I like the taco seasoning packets too. Lawry's brand is my favorite, it's always just right.

I can't have the seasoning packs cause they are too salty. I go with cumin, chile, cilantro and lime juice. I usually have fresh cilantro on hand and keep a bottle of lime juice.

I looked for them in the section with the packets for spaghetti sauce, etc. I don't remember seeing one for spaghetti, maybe I didn't notice. OMG who knew there were that many kinds of packets of seasoning, but no taco seasoning!

Then, when I was in the aisle with the Mexican food, I found them. I swear, they didn't used to have them there.
