  • 2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder

  1. You have the option to use whole spices as well, which would definitely increase the flavors in the spice blend! If you want to use whole spices, dry toast them in a frying pan so that the aroma is emitted. Then let cool and turn into a powder with morsel or blender.
  2. Store in a jar in a dry and cool place away from sunlight. Use whenever needed.
  3. Adjust the heat by reducing the red chili powder amount or by using different chili varieties such as ancho, habanero, de arbol or serrano.
  4. I used a roasted garlic powder version
  5. I like to use a smoked Paprika
