So far I have tried the Sante Fe blend and the Savory Garlic. I have cooked up some penne pasta and veges and used the Sante Fe blend along with some mozzarella cheese and that was pretty good. Also tried it on homemade Quesadilla's with a cheese blend and that was really good. The garlic blend I have only added to dishes to enhance flavor and haven't experimented with that one much but it does taste good and can be even used as a dip. As far as cost, they are not cheap, but they can go a long way and be used for multiple meals. I think they cost around $2.78 or $2.48 something like that at the Walmart I sometimes shop at.
