Dry Mix Recipes

                                                                     Taco Seasoning 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
red pepper flakes (optional, add if you like spicy!)
Mix together all ingredients in a bowl.  Store in airtight container.
Add 2-3 Tbsp. of mix and ¼ cup of water to 1 pound of meat.  Adjust amount of mix to what tastes good to you. 
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).

Place all ingredients in a glass jar, shake to mix well, cover with a tight lid and store in a dry place.
To prepare Dressing, whisk together ¼ c white vinegar, 2/3 c canola oil, 2 TB  water, and 2 TB of the dry dressing mix.
To make Cucumber Toasties (these were served at our Spa night)

Get ready to share your recipe – everyone will want it!
