I love homemade mixes. Like Patti, I use a taco blend as well. I use all of these that I have listed.

Mexican Spice Blend (tacos, enchiladas, etc)

2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp cayenne

I use an all-purpose spice that we love on chicken, pork chops, eggs, I sprinkle it on almost everything.

All-Purpose Seasoning

1/4 cup paprika
3 tbsp chili powder
2 1/2 tbsp dry mustard
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp curry
1 tbsp ground basil
2 tbsp ground coriander

Homemade Baking Powder

1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp cornstarch

Better Than Salt Herb Flavouring

3 dried bay leaves, broken up
4 tbsp dried oregano
4 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp dried lemon zest
4 tsp dried marjoram
4 tsp dried basil
4 tsp dried savory
4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp caraway seeds (optional)

Mix the herbs and crush to a coarse texture with a mortar and pestle or spice grinder.

One of the uses is to mix some with butter, and let stand in frig to blend flavours. Use on vegetables, breads, meat or fish.

Homemade Shake and Bake

2 cups flour
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
2 tbsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp basil
4 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp ginger

Combine 2-3 tbsp mixture with fine dry bread crumbs.
