These are wonderful! So far I've tried the chicken fajita and the taco (for our turkey tacos tonight) and so far, so yummy! Certainly brightens up this short budget South Beach diet for us! Thank you!!

MrsHester,

I am so glad you liked them. I too used these when we were South Beach-ing.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'm glad you found me. The jars I have shown here came from Ikea. They were a pack of 5 for $3.00. However, if you have a World Market near you, they also sell nice spice jars for an inexpensive price.
