You can easily customize this recipe to fit the tastes of your family. Taste as you go to determine if the seasoning is to your liking, you can always add more! (I have used up 1/4 cup of taco seasoning before!) It’s also fun to incorporate ingredients from the garden, so we will use onion, jalapeno’s, and fresh herbs when they are in season.

  1. I cook for a large group at my church and have to multiply the recipes that I make, so could you tell me how many servings this makes approximately? Thank you, this sounds great and something I plan on making for them!
