Mexican Spice Mix

Living in the southwest I have come to use a lot of spices that I was not previously familiar with.  Like I have said before, I grew up in a spice-free Italian home.  So, black pepper was about it.  Now, I have come to love so many flavors, Mexican included.  So, to make things easy on myself I developed a great blend of these spices.  The Mexican Spice Mix is not too spicy, you will notice it does not contain cayenne pepper.  I hope you enjoy!

Mexican Spice Mix

? Cup chili powder

? Cup paprika (I decide upon Hungarian sweet or smoked)

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1? Teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon floor dried chipotle chile pepper

2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves

Combine in a small bowl.  Pour into an air tight container.  Enjoy in your dishes to add a Mexican flavor!
