I’ve mentioned it a hundred times, but I’m going to mention it again – Cody and I are obsessed with Mexican food. We’d eat it every single day…literally. So, because we love it so much and because we are currently located nowhere near Mexican restaurants, we’ve stepped up and perfected our own Tex Mex meals to such a degree that we personally feel like we do Mexican better than any Mexican restaurant we’ve ever visited. And we do not say that lightly.
At the heart of every Mexican meal is a blend of spices that took Cody a long time to perfect. It took such a long time because we’ve made a lot of Mexican meals over a long period of time, and we’ve adjusted our spice mix until it was absolutely perfect. Cody’s some kind of spice doctor – he’s extremely meticulous about getting everything juuuuuust right, to the smallest variations of quantities.
How to make homemade all-purpose Mexican Spice Mix?
This Mexican Spice mix can be used as a dry rub, added to oil to use as a marinade for chicken, beef or even fish if you’re so inclined. Basically, we just use it as an all-purpose Mexican seasoning for a wide variety of meals. Mexican chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, and salt is all it is, but what makes it special is the perfected quantities of each.
Another thing that’s great about it, is the fact that you can make a big batch to keep around the kitchen to use whenever you cook up a Tex Mex feast. It’s perfect for these Damn Good Zesty Chicken Fajitas or these Low-Carb Mini Cheese Tacos or Ground Beef Lettuce Wraps.
This is the best and last Mexican Spice mix you’ll ever need!
