Mexicali seasoning is a robust spice blend of cilantro, chili powder, cumin, chipotle, cilantro, oregano, garlic and onion powder. Use with beef, chicken, pork, seafood and vegetables!
I have another seasoning blend for you to try. Are you excited? I’m excited.
I love when I can add a new spice blend to my ever-growing list of spice and seasoning blends. So far this Mexicali seasoning makes twenty-one spice blends recipes! Can you even??
I should seriously consider starting my own line of spice blends.
For this Mexicali Seasoning blend, you will need:
- dried cilantro
- chili powder
- chipotle powder
- kosher salt
- onion powder
Into a glass jar measure out 2 tablespoons dried cilantro*, 2 tablespoons chili powder and 1 tablespoon ground cumin. Then add 2 teaspoons chipotle powder, 2 teaspoons kosher salt, 2 teaspoons paprika, 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, and 1 teaspoon each of garlic and onion powder.
*If you don’t have the dried cilantro, you could also use always just use fresh cilantro in the dish you are preparing (not the spice mix).
Then stir and store in an air-tight container in a dark, dry area for months.
This recipe makes 1/2 cup, so you have plenty of it to make allthethings.
The flavor of these spice blend is robust and a smidgen smoky but overall it’s delicious and versatile. I have a recipe I’m super excited to share with you tomorrow, where I used this flavorful Mexicali seasoning. I’m also adding it to ground turkey when I make tacos this weekend. However you can totally use this seasoning on beef, chicken, pork, shrimp or vegetables. Mix it into dips, compound butters or salad dressings!
