1/4 cup dried onion powder or dried minced onion
1/4 cup chili powder
2-3 T. salt ( If watching your salt use 2 T. If not, 3 T. is good)
4 tsp. cornstarch
1 T. garlic powder or dried minced garlic
1 T. cumin
1 T. crushed red pepper flakes
Mix together in a small bowl. Place in a glass container with lid.
Add 2 T. Taco Seasoning mix and 1/2 cup of water to 1 lb. browned and drained hamburger or other cooked ground meat. Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
I often only use 1/2 lb. of hamburger and add 1 T. mix with 1/4 cup of water to cooked meat and finish like for the one lb.
