  • 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp salt*
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper


  • Mix until spices are combined.
  • Store in an airtight container if not using immediately. Makes the equivalent of 1 seasoning packet.


- If you are doubling/tripling/etc. this recipe, I recommend using table salt (i.e. Morton's). Kosher salt is fine for a single batch.
- This recipe is easy to make in bulk. I typically make a quadruple batch and store it in a tightly covered, small mason jar. Use 2 tbsp. of seasoning mix in place of a seasoning packet.
