How to use your bulk seasoning

The ratio I use when adding taco flavor to protein is 2 tbsp mix per 1 pound of protein. That could be with ground beef, ground turkey or chicken breast. I find 2 tbsp is the perfect amount to add flavor. If you love extra taco flavor, increase it to 3 tbsp per 1 pound of protein.
