I love enchiladas. Actually, my whole family loves them and it’s also one of the few things we all can agree on for dinner. Enchiladas are one of those meals that can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. With that said the filling options are endless as are the toppings.

I’ve made my own enchilada sauce from scratch before using fresh tomatoes. I have also made a more simple 15-minute version (which I use more often than not). While making it recently, I casually thought to myself ‘I make this sauce so often I should bottle the spices to make it easier’ queue the lightbulb above my head. The same thing happened when I made chicken shawarma.

Having a pre-made spice blends on hand will aid in using up the spices in your cupboard so they don’t just sit there waiting to expire, furthermore having them on hand will no doubt speed up your weeknight (or weekend for that matter) meal making. No more searching for spices and measuring each and every one.

But this homemade enchilada seasoning blend isn’t just for sauce making. Sprinkle it over chicken, rub it into beef or just toss it with a mess of vegetables and grill OR maybe you have a recipe calling for enchilada spice mix? Use it similarly as you would taco or fajita seasoning. I still have a few recipes that I want to try it in, and with any success, you can bet I’ll be sharing it here asap.
