I’ve been using Mexican Seasoning with abundance lately, I can’t get enough of it. We’ve been having a lot of BBQs and it’s sensational as a rub on all meats and I have been whipping up a lot of Mexican dishes requiring it (cue: Mexican Street Corn and Chopped Mexican Salad). I just can’t bring myself to buy it when surely, with my excessive collection of herbs and spices, I have all the base ingredients? Besides, it’s dead easy and you’ll save yourself some pennies! Here’s my Mexican seasoning recipe. Enjoy!
Combine the following ingredients in a jar and give it a good shake. Done!
- 2 tsp sweet paprika
- 1 ½ tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chilli powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion flakes (I crush them down with my mortar and pestle)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
I use this as a rub on chicken, beef, fish and to liven up any chilli concoction. It’s also delicious sprinkled over roast potatoes halfway through their cooking time!
