      I tried this recipe on a taco night because we already had all the ingredients in the cupboard. It tasted very good, though a bit spicier than the average seasoning packet. I liked the spicy flavoring, so it didn't bother me one bit.

      Looks tasty. Wonder if you have ever scaled it up and made a much larger quantity.
