You can adjust the spiciness of this seasoning mix and also the saltiness of the final product, so this can be easily adjusted to your personal taste!

Note: This recipe doesn't use chili powder because chili powder is basically just a different mix of these same ingredients.


Substitution for smoked paprika: Ultimately you can leave it out, but you'll be missing some depth of flavor.

Substitute for garlic powder: You can either use onion powder or add minced garlic to whatever you're cooking.

Substitute for Mexican oregano: You can use regular oregano instead, but be aware that the flavors are more different than you would think, so it's definitely worth trying to find Mexican oregano.

I think it will be too spicy for me! If you are sensitive to spicy foods you can cut some of the cayenne and replace it with sweet paprika.

I think it isn't spicy enough! No problem! Add more cayenne!
