gaynel's notes for this recipe:
Our power company sends out a magazine each month with events in our state, and it has a cooking section in it. I have gotten and tried so many fabulous recipes from this magazine, this being one of them.

We must have the same co-op, I love the recipes in the magazine but hate to see it come every month. (I know my power bill is about to arrive-lol). I missed this one, thanks for sharing it. Gonna give it a try!

Yes we must. I have south central power. I've torn out those cooking pages for years. Everything I've tried is good.

Oh my this sounds fab... going to print it now...I will try making a low fat version of it though. Our power company sends out a magazine called ruralites I belive and awlyas has awesome deliveries.

I know some recipes for homemade taco seasoning is on this site. The packaged kind is convenient but so full of sodium.
Just type in taco seasoning mix

Thanks I'll take a look...I do have a taco seasoning mix I make up and use quite oftil but it's not low in sodium....probably better than store bought though.
