Here's a copycat recipe that's much less expensive than purchasing the real deal at the market and doesn't have oodles of chemicals in it. The ingredient amounts equal one Lipton packet serving.


  • 1/4 cup dried minced onion
  • 2 Tbsp low or no sodium beef bouillon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder


Combine all ingredients.

I tried the El Pollo Loco copycat recipe this past weekend. Tasted good but not like the real deal. Lila, given that this is your recipe, I'm sure the results will be much better.

This is great when you are out of dry onion soup. It is easy to make your own.



Mix together well. Stir before using. 1 package equals 1 oz. Makes 8 oz.

I love this! I have never seen a recipe for dry soup mix and have always felt like I had to go buy some whenever I needed it for a recipe. Thanks!

I have been using this recipe for years in place of the original. I think it is just as tasty and is certainly less expensive than the real thing.




Combine all ingredients. Quantity is the equivalent of 1 package of soup mix.

When you prepare meatloaf, pot roast, beef stew, etc., why buy those little packets of onion soup when you probably have all these ingredients in your kitchen already?



  • 1/3 cup beef bouillon
  • 3/4 cup minced onion
  • 4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar


Mix together all of the ingredients and store in an airtight container. Five tablespoons of this mix is equal to one (1.25-oz) package.
