Servings6 (1/2 tablespoon servings)


  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder*
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika (or regular)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (more/less as desired)

Optional spicy additions:

  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, a dash of cayenne pepper, or a dash of ground chipotle


  • Add all ingredients to a small bowl or jar. Stir or shake until thoroughly combined.
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container for later use. (It keeps for several months.)


*Chili powder: I use American-style mild chili powder.
Yield: Recipe makes about 3 tablespoons. (So double, triple, or quadruple as desired.)
Storing: If preparing for later, store seasoning blend in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. (I keep ours in a small, sealed mason jar in our pantry.)
