  1. Using a mini food processor (a blender would probably work, too), chop the minced onions until smaller.
  2. Put the remaining ingredients in with the minced onions and process until you have a powder with mini pieces of onion.
  3. Label and use within 6 months.

Yield: 3 batches

To make this REALLY 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.)

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 on low, covered, for about 10 minutes.
