  • 6

    tablespoons minced onion

  • 3

    tablespoons chili powder

  • 2

    tablespoons cumin

  • 1

    tablespoon garlic salt

  • ½

    tablespoon oregano

  • ½

    tablespoon cornstarch


Using a mini food processor (a blender would probably work, too), chop the minced onions until smaller. Put the rest of the ingredients in with the minced onions and process until you have a powder with mini pieces of onion. Label and use within 6 months. Note: 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon is equal to one store bought package of taco seasoning mix. To Use: Combine 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon mix with 1 pound cooked meat. Add 1/2 cup water; stir. Cook over low heat, covered, for about 10 minutes. Yield: 3 batches NOTES: To make this REALLY spicy, add 1/8 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the blender. (Try the recipe as is first, before adding the red pepper flakes.)
