My Favorite Mexican Seasoning Mix!

I love Mexican foods!  I can’t help it, I just love the spicy blend of flavors.  But, I don’t like all of the salt you find in over the counter packaged mixes.  So now I prefer to mix up my own.  It takes about 5 minutes to make and saves a ton of $$$ and is better tasting too!

Mexican Seasoning Mix

1 cup dried minced onion

1/3 cup beef bouillon powder

1/3 cup chili powder

2 tablespoons ground cumin

1 tablespoon oregano

2 teaspoons garlic powder

4 teaspoons crushed red pepper (optional)

Combine all these ingredients and store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months.

Uses:

  • Add 1 tablespoon to and recipe calling for Mexican flavor, or sprinkle on top of foods you want to make spicy.
  • Add 1 tablespoon to chopped tomatoes and green peppers for a tasty dip or filling for tacos.
  • Add 1 tablespoon to shredded cheese before melting for another dip.  Serve with sour cream.
  • Mix with ground beef, and cheese for topping nacho chips.
