A couple years ago Taco Bell and Kraft Foods got together to produce a line of products—everything from taco kits to salsas and spice mixes—all stamped with the familiar Taco Bell logo and available in supermarkets across the country. The idea was a winner, and now the Taco Bell line of products is among Kraft's top sellers. The clone of this mix, made with a combination of common spices and cornstarch, can be kept indefinitely until your brain's fajita-craving neurons begin firing. When you're set to cook, you'll need some chicken, a bell pepper, and an onion, then follow the same prep instructions you find on the package of the real thing.

A really great hard-to-find recipe (I live in Australia) But backed-off on the chili for younger palates and omitted the salt - the stock cube is already loaded! I doubled the cumin however... Thank you.

Wow, this was so simple to make and so tasty. I always used packet mixes before but never again. Thank you
