This is a versatile blend that I like to use when I want to add a southwest twist to my cooking. I add 2-3 tablespoons to lean ground meat when I make chili. I even mix it with canned tomatoes for a spiced tomato blend. You can even mix 1 tablespoon with the juice of a couple of limes for a marinade. I think the original recipe came from Canadian Living magazine.
- 1⁄3 cup chili powder
- 1⁄4 cup instant minced onion
- 2 tablespoons dried coriander
- 2 tablespoons instant minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
- Combine all ingredients and store in a sealed jar.
Thanks for sharing, I am making up a batch as we "speak", just waiting for my grandson to return from the store as I didn't have any dried coriander. Judging by the amount called for I knew I couldn't leave it out. Great suggestions I might add, will try the marinade for sure tomorrow on the steaks. Thanks again.
I followed the recipe exactly, except I don't keep dried minced onion or garlic on hand, since I always have those fresh!! So I used garlic and onion powder instead. I can always use a SW Spice blend, so this is a welcome addition to my homemade spice rack. Thanks for sharing!
This made a nice spice blend for my taco's for DH's supper. Thanks for a quick and inexpensive recipe~ ETA - in place of the instant minced garlic I chose to use garlic powder.
