Mexican Seasoning Blend

Mexican Seasoning Blend

Many recipes that I cook such as chili beans, taco meat, and fajitas use a blend of spices that is very characteristic of the dominant flavors of Mexico.  This seasoning is the foundation of Mexican cooking.


Ingredients:

1/2 cup of New Mexico chili powder
1/2 cup of paprika
1/4 cup of Cayenne pepper
1/4 cup of cumin
1/4 cup of garlic salt



Instructions:

1.  In a small bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
2.  Store in a plastic bag or plastic jar.  Place in a cabinet where it will remain dry.
