1 C. minced dried onions
1/2 C. chili powder
1/4 C. garlic powder
1/4 C. cumin
2 Tbsp. oregano
2 Tbsp. salt
2-3 Tbsp. red pepper flakes (optional, add if you like spicy!)
Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Store in airtight container.
Use 2-3 Tbsp. of mix to 1 pound of meat. My family likes more seasoning on their meat--just use what tastes good to you. You can add a little water if your meat is really lean to help it coat all the meat evenly.
This recipe is great because you can control how spicy (add red pepper flakes) or smokey (add more or less cumin) you like it, plus, you can leave the salt out all together if you need a lower sodium version (this version already has less sodium than most store brands out there).
