My husband and I used to own a fast food Mexican restaurant, so we've eaten many tacos over the years. When we ran our local CYO program, we'd buy a 12pack of tacos from Taco Bell and we'd enjoy lunch together every Sunday before we opened the gym. (We'd sold our restaurant by that time.)
So I have many fond memories of Mexican food, and yet, when it came to making tacos at home, I just couldn't find a decent recipe that everyone liked. My husband enjoyed the Ortega taco seasoning packet, but I found it tasted rather flat. And every time he would ask me to make tacos, I would cringe.
Now I've found something that really makes my tacos taste terrific- Frontera Taco Skillet Sauce. Chef Rick Bayless, who owns the famous Frontera Grill in Chicago, has packaged his own brand of taco seasoning sauce, and it is what I've been looking for for a long time.
I tried the Texas Skillet Sauce, which has cumin and red chile sauce. It really tasted fresh and rich, as opposed to the powder-y tasting taco seasoning packets. There are three other flavors, Key Lime Cilantro, Chipotle Garlic, and New Mexico, as well as many other sauce and seasoning products that can be found on the website here.
My husband loves it too, so now we'll be able to have tacos that we both enjoy, thanks to Rick Bayless.
