This dry enchilada seasoning is quick and easy to make, and perfect for seasoning your favorite proteins, veggies, rice and more.




  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until combined.
  2. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 year.


I used traditional American chili powder for this recipe (not cayenne).  Feel free to use a mixture of chili powder and chipotle chili powder, if you would like a smokier seasoning.

  1. Thank you for your time & effort I really appreciate your hard work keep it up:).
    The recipes are great & easy to implement & your advice & explanation are very helpful.
    I appreciate the variety of recipes & the website is amazing & well organized.

  2. This was a great recipe! I like to keep things simple and as such, I don’t keep enchilada sauce on hand. I was excited to see this seasoning recipe that I could make and add to tomato sauce when I want to make enchiladas. And it uses spices that I already have in my pantry! Thanks for this recipe and I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!

  3. This was great and so easy. I had some leftover lentils, very bland, knew they needed some “help” before I used them to make enchiladas. I first toasted (a portion of) your spice blend and then added the lentils, stirring them around to get them covered and delicious. I took a small bite just to see, but then I wanted to take more bites it was so yummy. (I didn’t — just for inside the enchiladas.)

    Thank you!

  4. I’m confused…how do I make a sauce or marinade with this spice blend? Veronica commented (in 2019) that she added the spice blend to tomato sauce. BTW, I’ve spent a few happy hours browsing your website and saving recipes. You cover a wonderful variety of cuisines and I especially like your friendly writing style. Great photos too.
