A batch of homemade Tex Mex Seasoning is the best shortcut to making tacos, burrito bowls, fajitas, soups, or other Southwestern-style dishes. Keep a batch of this in your pantry and use it in any Southwestern or Mexican recipe. NOTE: This makes enough for any recipe that makes 4 servings, but use the slider below (next to “Servings”) to easily adjust the measurements so you can make a big batch to store for future recipes.

1/2tspSalt (optional; see note)
1/2tspGarlic Powder - Make sure you use garlic powder and not garlic salt.
Salt is always optional in homemade seasoning. Feel free to add it to the blend now or wait and add it, to taste, when you make a recipe later. (Just don’t forget it entirely. Salt will bring out the flavors in the recipe you’re making and will allow this seasoning blend to really shine.)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
The seasoning will deliver maximum flavor if used within 6 months, but can be safely stored (and used in recipes) in a cool, dry place for a year or more.
