Why You’ll Love It

Amp up your tacos by adding fresh flavor. All it takes is a pouch of Frontera Taco Skillet Sauce warmed with browned meat or chicken. For a flavor that takes me straight back to my Southwest childhood, I simmer browned ground chuck with the richness of red chile, tomato and spices, wrap it in warm corn tortillas and enjoy some of the best tacos ever.

Pantry Staple!

If we don't have a few packets of this on hand at all times, my mom freaks out. This is a great price, and the sauce is super tasty - I don't think it gets much easier to make really delicious taco meat. Cook meat, add sauce. You can make it fancier with some onion/ cilantro/ salsa if you want, but it's good just as it is. We use it with ground turkey. Yum!

Most Excellent

First time trying the Taco Skillet Sauce and I love it.
All the taco powdered packets have too many artificial ingredients and I just notice your display at the last second. Thank god I found your product and after tasting the finished product all I can say is Bravo!!

- Solomon Rose


Best taco sauce ever, hands down :D

- Cheryl

Not just for tacos

I use this as a base for my chili along with the ground meat, onions, peppers, etc. I've had so many people ask me for the recipe!

- Laura

Gluten Free Taco Sauce!

This is the only taco sauce/seasoning that we have been able to find that says it is gluten free. It is very good! Thanks to Thrive's prices, we can have cheap taco nights again!

- Frances


Makes taco night so much easier

- Mary

Quick & Delicious

I loved the flavor of this sauce! It is quite salty though, so you might like to add rice, beans, cabbage, etc. to your dinner to balance it out.

- Kathy

Great mix

I normally make mine from scratch. But this mix is fabulous!

- Renee

Easy and Tasty

We always stock up on this now - we can't have enough taco meat in our house, and it's SO easy to use. I love Frontera products because they're so full of flavor, you can add extra veggies or meat to the recipe. My favorite addition is diced potatoes :)

- Angie

Amazing Tacos!

This is the best quick taco seasoning I have ever tried. And the best thing of all, it's gluten free! Most of the packaged taco seasonings are full of gluten. Blech! This one tastes much better than the other leading packets, too.
It is also $1 less than at the supermarket. Score! Stocking up!
