Well, I'm not sure it's a total mess up as of yet. But I'm making chicken for tacos tonight, and I thought I was shaking a bunch of cumin in the pot, turns out, it was cinnamon. I'm hoping that the addition of actual cumin and letting it simmer for a while will help it to not taste bad.

I would order the pizza now.


Good luck either way.

I've rinsed chicken before for similar errors. lol

Just tell your family their palletes aren't refined enough if they don't like it;)

I hope it turns out!

My dd used cayenne pepper instead of paprika in taco meat. After she *fixed* it and her sister made the shells...worst tacos EVER!

Hey, it happens to the best of us.  This has been years ago, quite literally but I once attempted to make blackened fish.  The only problem was I made it WAY too blackened where it wasn't even edible!  Needless to say I haven't tried it again!

I once put all spice on catfish. v.v Thinking it was black pepper. The grinders were sitting next to each other in my spice rack. Oops.

Cinnamon might not be that bad. Unless you used a ton.

Yuck, there are two delivery pizza choices here. One is Pizza Hut which is gross. The other is a local pizza chain that is delicious but outrageously expensive. So I guess my family is just going to have to deal with it.

If it wasn't a lot it could be salvageable.
Have you tasted it yet ?

Meh, shouldn't mess it up too bad. It will definately be a different flavor, but cinnamon works pretty well with anything else going into tacos.
