    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.

    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
