Once everyone is making their own taco seasoning, those carbs will come down some.  There are carby thickening agents (and a ton of sodium and other weird things) in the store-bought kind that are affecting the numbers.  I’m planning a seasoning post soon so we can stock your kitchen with healthier versions of the store-bought stuff.  Then we’ll update the macros in recipes like this.
