Taco Spice Mix

Simple Taco Spice Mix

This is a basic spice combination that I like to use as a base for tacos, burritos, chilis, etc. Nothing too fancy, just enough to get started. Please use your eyeballs and taste buds to measure accordingly.


A lot of Cumin

About the same amount of Oregano

A little less Coriander

Some Pepper & Salt

A lil bit of Chili powder (amount depends on what type of chili pepper)


  1. Put spices in a mortar & pestle, crush that shit up and rub it on the meat. (or tofu, if so-inclined)
  2. Light up the grill, crack open a beer and cook it up!

Other spices than I like to add:

Beef: Cinnamon, Allspice, Mustard Seed, Onion Powder

Pork: Lemon Salt, Anetto Seed, Epazote, Cloves

Chicken: Paprika, Celery Salt,Thyme, Garlic Powder
