This is a very handy starter mix for all kinds of recipes...I always keep it handy in my freezer, and use it for recipes calling for ground beef...it sure saves a lot of time, as you don't have to start to fry ground beef, and the onions and garlic are already in it, a real time-saver! You can add in 2 cups crushed or diced tomatoes also if desired.
