Southwest Seasoning Mix
Making a homemade southwest seasoning mix is quick and easy, cost effective and full of rich smoky flavor.
Every dish from fajitas to grilled steaks will burst with bold, bright and delicious southwest flavors. Like ground cumin with its warm and earthy flavor, ground coriander and its light lemony taste balances the rich and warm spice of the chili powder. In addition if you would like a salt free southwest seasoning mix, omit the sea salt.
Simply use it as a dry rub or a marinade to season chicken, turkey or fish. Sprinkle it over fresh salsa, mix in a bit of the seasoning mix to sour cream for a delicious smoky vegetable dip. Additionally mix it in with hummus and spread on a warmed tortilla with shredded chicken for a flavor-packed wrap. The possibilities are endless–beef tenderloin, grilled vegetables and more.
