Taco Spice Mix

This mix is adapted from Cook’s Illustrated.  I use this basic mix for beef, turkey and vegetable tacos.

1 onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1-2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander
1 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. cayenne
salt & pepper
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup broth (chicken or vegetable)
1 tspn brown sugar
2 tsp. cider vinegar

Saute the onion, garlic & meat or vegies/beans. Add the spices and cook until they darken, about a minute or two. Add the tomatoes, broth, brown sugar & vinegar. Simmer until desired thickness.
