Bag all the dry ingredients in a quart freezer or sandwich bag (depending on method chosen).
Add 1¼ cups near boiling water to the bag. Stir well, seal tightly and put in a cozy for 15 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients and 1¼ cups boiling water to your mug. Stir well, cover tightly and let sit for 15 minutes.
One pot method:
Bring 1¼ cups water to a boil. Turn off the heat and add in the dry ingredients. Stir well, cover tightly and set aside for 15 minutes. In cool temperatures or at altitude use a pot cozy to retain heat.
Note: You can substitute plant based “ground beef” instead.
