Tex-Mex Spice

This is a simple spice mixture that we have come up with for when we are craving those Tex-Mex flavors. Sprinkle on and rub into your meats or fish, or add 2 tbsp to ground beef or turkey for tacos.  Some of the amounts may need to be adjusted to fit your spice tolerance and other spices can be added. Like I said, this is a simple mix that can be adjusted in order to change the flavor profiles. Mix up and store in an air-tight container. Much better than those store bought packets with a list of ingredients that nobody can pronounce.

  • 4 tbsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper

Other spices you may choose to add are cayenne pepper, ancho chili powder, chipotle chili powder (these 3 for heat), oregano, paprika, etc…whatever you think sounds good.
