Dry Mix Recipes
Thought everyone might like these recipes -
Dry Ranch Dressing, Dry Onion Soup, and Dry Taco Seasoning

Make your own Ranch, Dry Onion Soup Mix and Taco Seasoning and store in small mason jars....This is soooo much HEALTHIER than those you buy at the store!! They contain a TON of stuff that is not good for you!!

Taco Seasoning Recipe

1/2 cup chili powder...
1/4 cup onion powder
1/8 cup ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon sea salt

Put ingredients into a jar and shake.

Dry Onion Soup Mix Recipe

2/3 cup dried, minced onion
3 teaspoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Mix all ingredients in a jar
then give the jar a good shake.
I’d recommend shaking the jar to mix the ingredients well before each use.
Use 4 tablespoons in a recipe in place of 1 packet of onion soup mix.
Store this in a dry, cool place.

Dry Ranch Dressing Recipe

5 tablespoons dried minced onions
7 teaspoons parsley flakes
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix together and store in an air tight container.

For dressing:
Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk or sour cream.

For dip: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix
with 2 cups sour cream.

Mix up a few hours before serving, so the flavors all blend.

I would like to smoke some meats but don't know where start.  Does anyone know how to use a smoker and how to smoke meats in it.

Here is another recipe that Diane WI might want to try. You could easily omit the food coloring, if you prefer not to use it. I believe this is from a 2008 newsletter. Congratulations on having such great success with your garden this year.

Drain corn, set juice aside. Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Place chicken breasts on the bottom of crockpot. Pour salsa on top of chicken then top with onion and pepper slices.
