Carne Asada Seasoning

"This is one of the spices I never seem to have on hand when making tacos, burritos and many of the delicious recipes from South of the border calling for Carne Asada Seasoning. One of the recipes I made recently had this recipe from years back come to mind, it is so once again going to be my go to. When mixing seasonings I like to make extra to keep in a lidded shaker jar, great to shake on steak, ribs or add to ground beef dishes as I cook."

Made this at double recipe. But, I added 1 tsp Cayenne and 1 tsp smoked paprika.

Wonderful seasoning! When I read the recipe, decided to quadruple it and so glad I did! Used the Mexican chili powder and only 1/2 tsp salt, left the oregano as is, did break up the onions a wee bit. Then I cut a flat of boneless, skinless chicken breasts into cutlets and liberally rubbed in the seasoning and grilled them. Perfect to use for a quick salad, sandwich or soup. Looking forward to actually making something Mexican with it! Thanks Gerry for another great recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
