I purchased the Taco Enhancer product and first tried it when making some ground beef for my tacos. I tried the meat just using the taco spice and it did well just being on its own. It provided a reasonable amount of heat to the meat that wasn't overpowering but was noticeable. As I ate more of the meat with the spice I felt the heat of the product increase which was nice. If you don't like hot stuff, this is a good product to get you started to feel a little heat that is reasonable. If you like hot stuff, this probably won't do it for you but it does provide a small kick. It paired well with the ground beef as the meat really soaked up the spice.
