“Texas: 32 electoral votes, another of the so-called big enchiladas or if not an enchilada at least a huge taco.” Dan Rather, Newsman

The refrigerator light goes on...

Here's the math. Making your own taco seasoning by measuring out of each individual spice jar costs less than 2 dollars. Yet if you purchase all of the individual spices (about $17.00 or so), not only can you use the spices for other recipes, you can still make taco seasoning a good dozen times - and without additives or added salt.
