Chef Marina's Taco Seasoning Recipe

What’s the secret?!! Ground Crossover Blends™ tacos have been a hit in the test kitchen. We’ve made them with beef, lamb, and pork Crossover Blends™ but we’ve yet to decide on the ultimate winner, because they’re perfect every. time.

We got curious about what makes them so good, so we took a peek at Chef Marina's notebook. We think her special secret is a special taco seasoning she made. It's got a unique mix of spices that really amps up the flavor, making it the perfect starting point for making these delicious tacos at home. So we’re sharing it with you so you can try it too, and perhaps confirm if our suspicions are true!
