Spice It!

Sherry Peyton


I just hate to see a recipe that tells me to add a package of "taco seasoning". It's so much cheaper and so much tastier to put your own seasoning together. And you don't get all the salt and all the fillers that waste money and may not be as healthy. You of course can alter this to suit your tastes. I use this in all my Mexican or Tex-Mex dishes as well as on ribs or any barbecue. If you like this recipe, please see others at my website: mybestcookbook.wordpress.com

How to Make Spice It!


  1. Mix together with a whisk and store in a air tight container out of the sunlight. (if you have any of your spices in seeds such as coriander or cumin, either whir up in a grinder or grind with a mortar and pestle.
  2. Multiply by a factor of 10 and you will have plenty on hand!
