This is a simple recipe that makes about the equivalent of 3 prepared packages. ETA After reading Bea's comment I thought that I should mention here that I rarely add salt to anything.......except popcorn and corn on the cob. lol. So from what Bea sounds like 1 teaspoon of salt should work in this mix if you choose to add it. :)
