  • 2 Tablespoon chili powder plus 1 teaspoon
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoon oregano ground or ground Mexican oregano
  • 3 teaspoon cumin ground


  • You can grind the oregano in a spice grinder if you like. You can also just crush it more with your fingers.
  • Mix all of the ingredients well.
  • Store in a jar or tin with a tight lid.



Ground and dried spices last two to three years so there is no problem in keeping them on your shelf.
