Whisk together an easy Mexican spice blend for all your Cinco de Mayo recipes. I prefer to purchase single spices for my pantry to create my own mixes. It is both easy and economical.
This is a spicy blend! You can use more or less as desired to suit your palate. I do like it spicy, but of course it depends on who you are cooking for.
- 1 tbsp. crushed Chipotle Chile
- 2 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. onion granules
- 1 tsp. cumin
Measure the ingredients then grind in a coffee grinder or use a mortar and pestle. Store in an airtight container.
Notes: ♪♫ Single spices are much more likely to be gluten free, while some purchased blends may contain gluten. To be certain, always check labels and if necessary contact the manufacturer.
