DIY Mexican Seasoning Blend

    I love making up my own spice blends.  I make up many different spice blends including, Greek Spice Blend, Cajun seasoning, an Indian spice mix and even a Fajita seasoning mix.  Making up your own seasoning blends allows you to save money and tweak the blends to suit your tastes and the tastes of your family members.  I will never buy pre-packaged seasoning blends again.  Today I am teaching you how to make up a Mexican seasoning blend.  It is a multi-purpose dry seasoning that you can use to add a bit of Mexican flair to just about everything!

NOTE:  Mexican seasoning blend is NOT the same as taco seasoning.  The difference lies in the composition of the spices and differences in key ingredients.

·        1 T. chili powder

·        1 ½ tsp. cumin

·        1 ½ tsp. dried parsley

·        1 tsp. dried oregano

·        1 tsp. paprika (regular or smoked)

·        ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

·        ½ tsp. onion powder

·        ½ tsp. garlic powder

·        ½ tsp. salt

·        ½ tsp. black pepper

·        Pinch of cinnamon

Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl.  When they are mixed well, put the blend into a small canning jar with a lid.  Can be stored in the pantry for up to a year.  



Use it on tacos, burritos, enchiladas, burgers, soups, baked potatoes, or even to spice up a stew.
