    Have any of you used Mexican vanilla in a recipe? Does it change the taste? I bought a large bottle in San Antonio, TX, but I am not sure how to use it.

    I have never used it, but my neighbor uses nothing else. She said it is stronger and has a better taste. I have eaten some of the things she has baked and it was very good. She uses the amount called for.

    I was gifted with a large bottle many years ago and loved it! Used whatever was called for. Very nice flavor, wish I had more!!

    I love it. It also lasts a lot longer than what is in our stores. Use exactly what it calls for and it will be wonderful.

    Use it just like regular vanilla. I use it all the time. I get mine from Penzey's spices, not from mexico, but it's called mexican vanilla, so I can only assume it's similar.

    I love vanilla! And I LOVE Mexican vanilla. It stronger. Tastes better. Smells delicious. Especially great in recipes that you really notice the vanilla. I love to use this in my pecan pancakes! :)

    It's GREAT. I use it all the time. What's the worst thing that can happen if you try it once?

    I would only add one caveat. Some vanilla that is called Mexican Vanilla has lots of water and sugar in it, which dilutes it and makes it kind of funky. Mexican vanilla that is pure vanilla and alcohol ROCKS! Just make sure you aren't buying overpriced syrup.
