Salt- Free Mexican Seasoning Blend

I found this recipe for salt-free Mexican seasoning blend in one of my monthly Woman's day Magazines. I have been trying to cut out the extra salt and fat in my little family's diet lately. I have been wanting to lose a little weight and I liked the idea of making my own Taco Seasoning mix instead of buying those convenient but sodium laden packets of taco or chili seasoning mixes. I like this recipe and you can use it in place of your regular taco seasoning packets. It is also great as a rub!

Salt-Free Mexican Seasoning Mix
adapted from the March 2010 Edition of Woman's Day Magazine

1/4 c. salt free chili powder
1 Tbsp. Dried Oregano
1 Tbsp. Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt

Mix together until well blended and store in an air tight container or jar.

For Tacos or Chili: Use 2 1/2 Tbsp. per lb. of ground beef or turkey
As a rub (great for fajitas): Use 1 Tbsp. per lb. of steak, chicken or pork.

  1. oh neat! I've never made a mix of seasonings to use...just threw them all together while I was cooking. Do you have more seasoning mixes that you use??

  2. Ashlee this blog is so fun! I especially love this seasoning. The packets in the store can be expensive, but this is awesome! Can't wait to see more of your fabulous recipes!
