    Mexican spice mix

Food Percentage of DRI per 100 grams

When I realized that pretty much every store bought taco seasoning mix contains MSG, lactose, citric acid and corn syrup I wondered what that had to do with mexican cuisine. There are a few precious brands that use spices only. But making your own mexican spice mis is really easy. I usually make a big batch that will last for about 6 months. 



1/2 cup paprika powder

1/4 cup cumin powder

1 teaspoon chili powder

2 teaspoons chili flakes

3 tablespoons onion powder

3 tablespoons garlic powder

3 tablespoons dried oregano        

Simply add all ingredients to a bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Store in an air-tight glass jar in a cold and dark place up to 6 months.
