Making flavorful Mexican-style foods is enhanced by using these Grade A, Class 1 spices. Bursts of fresh flavors with just the right amount of heat!

  • Taco Seasoning-Brown favorite meat and add 8oz of water and 4 tablespoons of Taco Seasoning for every pound of meat. Works with ground beef, turkey, pork, and chicken, and is also a wonderful seasoning base for red beans and rice. Cut fresh corn directly off the cob and sauté with Taco Seasoning. Finish with some butter for extra warmth. Sprinkle over potato wedges and roast until crispy.

    Our salt-free Taco Seasoning blend contains chili powder, paprika, onion, garlic, cumin, brown sugar, black pepper, cayenne and Mexican oregano.

  • Fajita Seasoning-To make the perfect fajita marinade mix 2-3 tablespoons of fajita seasoning with 2/3 cup avocado or olive oil and 1/3 cup vinegar (or the juice from 3 freshly squeezed limes). Pour marinade over 3 lbs of thin strips (1/2" to 1" thick) of skirt, flank or round steak, chicken or pork and marinate in the refrigerator 4-8 hours . For shrimp marinate for 30 minutes to two hours. Marinate in large plastic re-sealable bags. You can either pan cook or grill the meat. If you decide to grill the meat cut the meat after cooking so marinate larger pieces. Ssprinkle a bit more seasoning over the meat during the cooking process. For the best flavor serve with cooked onions and green peppers (add right into the serving pan). Use a small preheated cast-iron skillet to serve and just before taking to the table squeeze fresh lemon juice over the meat (this gives the sizzle). For a healthier alternative serve with whole wheat tortillas, low fat sour cream, reduced fat Mexican shredded cheese, fresh pico de gallo and Guacamole.
    Hand blended from cumin, parika, cayenne, salt, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, cardamom, white pepper, coriander, rosemary, marjoram and cinnamon.
  • Enchilada Seasoning-Use this blend to make your own enchilada sauce by blending with tomato sauce and broth, which is added to a roux for thickening. Add directly to shrimp, chicken, or beef for a tasty sauté. Rub over pork butt and roast for pulled pork enchiladas. Mix with ground turkey for amazing turkey burgers. Use about 1 tablespoon of seasoning per pound of meat. Sprinkle Enchilada Seasoning over scrambled eggs or mix into rice. Make a Tex-Mex pasta salad with black beans and corn tossed in enchilada seasoning. Toss over skewered onions and grill. Use this seasoning for a new twist on roasted peppers in the dish peperonata, or use as a base for the beef stew ropa vieja or for either chicken or vegetarian tortilla soup.

    Blended from paprika, onion, garlic, Serrano, cumin, sea salt, demerara sugar, Ancho, Pasilla, coriander and oregano.

  • Chimichurri Seasoning-Use salt-free Chimichurri Seasoning wherever you want a fresh burst of flavor. Make Chimichurri Sauce and drizzle it over steak, ribs, or grilled sausage. It is also wonderful drizzled over grilled tofu. This is a mild, family-friendly seasoning blend so don’t be afraid to use it wherever you’d like an extra boost of flavor. Toss boiled potatoes in butter and Chimichurri Seasoning. Toss over toasted flatbreads. Stir into rice and beans. Make a dipping sauce for empanadas. It would be a wonderful addition to minestrone or tortellini soup. Add toward the end of cooking time; in soups, parsley can lose its flavor with too much exposure to heat. Under more direct heat, like a grill, parsley can burn.

    Blended from paprika, black pepper, parsley, garlic, basil, lemon, oregano, thyme and chili powder.
