“I ordered some spices from your on-line store. The box was bursting with wonderful smells as I repackaged my new spices into bottles. The prices were far better than what I am used to paying at the grocery store. I will certainly be a return customer! Thank you so much, I am glad I found you.”
*Adjust chipotle based on how spicy you like it.
Heat butter in large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook for 3 to 4 min. until it starts to become translucent.
