All-Purpose Mexican Seasoning

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by the80srule

Don't buy MSG-loaded Adobo, Sauzon, or store-bought fajita seasoning. Combine with oil and use it to marinate corn, chickpeas, potatoes, and beans for a crispy healthy snack, and it's also great for tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, and I swear by this seasoning for my arroz con frijoles. It works for other Latin American foods too.
