Homemade Mexican Seasoning Spice Blend Recipe: No Preservatives

I love the freshness of the ingredients in Mexican food. At our house it's made quite often because most Mexican recipes are easy and we all love the tastes and flavors. This homemade Mexican seasoning recipe replaces the store-bought packets that contain preservatives, although I still like those when I don't have this ready to go.

For this easy Mexican seasoning blend you'll need cornstarch, chili powder, salt, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, ground cumin and cayenne pepper. Simply whisk together all the ingredients and put it into an airtight container.

If you like more bite, consider increasing the cayenne until you get to the desired heat. Keep this homemade seasoning blend in your pantry in an airtight container to use anytime you'd like a little spice in your recipe. Try it on these easy fajitas or any other meal for a little extra spice.

Great idea to make your own seasoning blends. That way you know exactly what's in them and can customize it to your own tastes! #yum
By doing this you can always have fresh spices around. I hate when they get old and lose their taste. Good suggestion.
