    We grew up in ‘meat and potato’ families, but meat is now expensive and eating meat alone is not the best for our health. I always keep TVP on hand and often add it while cooking. It helps stretch the meat and no one even realizes it’s in the dishes I make. TVP makes a great addition to meatloaves, tacos, chili, sloppy joes, meatballs, or is anything seasoned. It keeps forever, needs no refrigeration, takes very little space, and is healthy. Since its cost is so little, I’d suggest everyone buy some and experiment with it. It just may become a staple in your pantry too.

    If you not into getting wheat and a grinder and all that stuff to make bread or tortillas, you could just get some cans of pilot crackers to go with something like this.

Although each of us may different results to the taste test, it is clear that this product is a cost effective way of storing protein for emergency situations or to have on hand for daily use.

    I would definitely stretch this my making a hearty taco soup. Just use a beef broth or bouillion, the taco mix TVP, freeze dried beef, can of tomatoes, corn, favorite beans, onions, macaroni and a package of taco seasoning if it is not very flavorful. Remember: most salad dressings can be used to flavor any soup.

    I usually have several people over at my apartment for different meetings or events. I use several scoops with one pound of beef and cook it up, no one knows the difference, and it is super easy to make... try it, you will like it, my guests do. It is cheap in price only, not flavor! Best wishes to you all...

    You won't mistake this for real ground beef, but the taco flavoring makes this TVP a great substitute. Very good in soups as well.

You can rest easy, knowing that Saratoga Farms™ Taco Mix is a part of your food storage--with essential nutrients, no preparation required, and a delicious, familiar taste, you can have food storage that you'll be excited to use! You've heard how important food storage is, but it's hard to get excited about storing a few dozen pounds of wheat and some instant milk. Those things are important, of course, but Saratoga Farms™ Taco Mix offers a tasty alternative to traditional food storage. With this Taco Mix, you won't have to stress over emergencies--personal or otherwise. Sometimes, you just can't get to the grocery store. It happens when money's tight or traffic's bad, and sometimes you just forget.

Having food storage in case of these minor emergencies is a great idea--but it's also essential to have some food stored up in case of big emergencies like natural disasters. These disasters--earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and many others--are vicious and often happen without any warning at all. Even those disasters that can be predicted, like storms, can exceed expectations of how severe they are supposed to be. So whether you're planning on using this food storage in case of disaster, or if you just want a back up on those days you just can't make it to the grocery store, this Taco Mix will make a great addition to your food storage. Having Saratoga Farms™ food storage means getting some peace of mind and not having to worry about emergencies, no matter what they are.
