3 tsp onion powder
3 tsp. salt

In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months. Yield: 3 batches (about 1/2 cup total)

To prepare taco meat: In a saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add water and 9 teaspoons seasoning mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Yield: 4 servings per batch.
