- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1/2 large sweet onion, coarsely chopped

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a very large stockpot and add 5 quarts water. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.
2. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the broth has reduced to approximately 4 quarts, about 2 1/2 hours. Strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl. Let cool until tepid.
3. Transfer to covered containers. Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat before serving.
