Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt + more as needed to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Instructions

  • In a small bowl or jar, mix all ingredients and store in airtight container. I like using a jar with a lid and giving it a shake to mix. This also makes it easy for storage.
  • For tacos or seasoning meat for another use, add 3 tablespoons seasoning mixture plus 1/2 cup water or chicken broth to one pound of cooked meat. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently until there is very little liquid left in the pan.

Notes

Adapted from Rachel Cooks.
It's the perfect amount of mix for this taco lettuce wrap recipe, avocado crema and all.
I typically use this mix for ground meat for tacos, but feel free to try it with shredded chicken for fajitas. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
