Here’s a recipe for a Mexican Seasoning Blend that I like to have on hand for quick seasoning of Mexican inspired dishes.
This Mexican seasoning blend is a wonderful rub for your choice of grilled meats, chicken, fish or veggies. Perfect to season fillings for tacos, add some spice to soups, stuffed peppers, and other dishes where you want a Mexican inspired favor profile. Store in an airtight container in your pantry and you’ll have a great spice mix ready to go!
Mexican Seasoning Blend
1/4 C. smoked paprika (or use regular paprika)
2 Tbls. garlic powder
2 Tbls. chili powder (I like Chipotle chili powder, use your favorite)
2 Tbls. oregano
2 Tbls. salt
2 Tbls. black pepper
1 Tbls. cumin
1 – 2 tsp. cayenne powder
Combine all ingredients and store in airtight container in cupboard.
