Ingredients

1 servingservings
USMetric
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons 2 teaspoons paprika powder
  • 2 teaspoons 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon chili flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon sea salt (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Thouroughly mix together all the spices. Pour into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. If you use whole seeds, grind in a grinder either in advance or when cooking.
  3. Keep the spices in a dark, dry and cool/room temperature place. Small tin cans are great.
  4. Make a big batch to last for 4–6 months; after this the spices will lose some flavor and color. They won't go bad, but will just be less powerful.

Tip!

We used dried garlic flakes, but you can also use garlic powder. Adding salt, or not, to your spice mix is a matter of choice. Try it with our keto taco shells!

    I live in Texas, and I do not agree with the addition of cinnamon and cloves....I have never see these spices in Tex-Mex seasoning (at least in the ones sold in Texas). May I suggest you write "optional" next to them?

    Wow, that's a lot of carbs per serving! Where do the carbs come from?
