Easy Spice Mix Hacks You Can Make in a Snap

There's no denying that a good spice mix can work wonders for most dishes. Whether it's a dry rub for chicken or a marinade for vegetables, spices and herbs can completely transform the flavors and textures of even the most basic foods. That said, we often find ourselves buying premixed spice combos, especially those we don't use on a regular basis, because they've already created and sitting in our cupboard. But did you know that making your own taco seasoning recipes can actually be quite simple and straightforward?

In this guide, you'll discover a few easy spice mix hacks that won't disappoint.

What Spices Go Well With Others?

Trying to mix spices can get a little complicated thanks to all of their different flavor profiles. While many spices go together quite well, there are others that simply don't play nicely with others. Here are a few combinations you might want to avoid when concocting homemade spice mixes:

  • Salt and anything citrusy.
  • Peppers of any variety with garlic or onion powder.
  • Anything spicy with cumin.
  • Oregano goes well with just about everything, so feel free to use it whenever you like.

Spice Mixes That Always Work Together

There are some spices that you can always mix together. Try any of these pairs the next time you need a fresh spice combo. Cumin and chili powder goes well with garlic salt, onion powder, Mexican oregano, paprika, cilantro, and cayenne pepper to make an all-purpose Tex-Mex dry rub.

Garlic salt, onion powder, chili powder, oregano, basil, parsley flakes, thyme, cumin, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and white sugar make a taco seasoning recipe packed with so much flavor you won't believe it.
