Inspired by the beautiful cities on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, this region is considered by many to be Mexican Riviera. Our Baja Mexican Seasoning is an ideal time-saving addition to any kitchen – simply sprinkle on your meat when cooking and you’ll have a delicious meal well on the way. We’ve hand-mixed this seasoning blend for those that prefer their seasonings loaded with flavor and aren’t afraid of some heat. This seasoning is ideal on your tacos, enchiladas and tostados but we also like to add it to our scrambled eggs, omelets, chili, fajitas, hamburgers, soups and stew.
The key to an authentic Mexican seasoning always begins with the proper use of Mexican chiles. A typically "American" taco type seasoning is going to have New Mexico or California chiles as the chiles of choice. These tend to be much milder and the flavor profile, in our opinion, isn't rich and deep. On the other hand a top grade Mexican seasoning is going to have some combination (usually three) of ancho, pasilla, guajillo, mulato and chipotle chiles. These chiles are best known for their complex layers of flavor more than for their heat levels (with the exception being the chipotle chile which does pack some heat). You'll also find many commercial Mexican seasonings use a bit too much cumin which tends to overpower the flavor profile as well. We use our freshly ground cumin in smaller amounts more to balance out the other flavors.
The flavor profile of our Baja Mexican Seasoning is earthy with a complex chile base that is savory and spicy, you'll also pick up a slight garlicky undertone with hints of onion. Our Baja Seasoning is a delightful salt free seasoning that is best suited for those that crave spicy flavor but don't want their seasonig to be "burn your face off" hot.
We like to add this to everything – simply sprinkle it on your tacos, enchiladas, burritos, quesadillas and tostados and you’ll have a quick and tasty exotic dinner for friends and family. Now don’t think that our Baja Mexican Seasoning can only be used for Mexican or Mex-Mex dishes. We also use it when we’re in search of some extra spicy flavor and add a dash or two (or sometimes three) to our scrambled eggs, chili, fajitas (beef, chicken and seafood), hamburgers, mac and cheese, omelettes, shrimp, soups and stews as well. Our Baja Mexican Seasoning also makes an excellent Mexican dry rub. Just add 1 tablespoon of seasoning per pound of meat and be sure to spread evenly on both sides, then pat the mixture into the meat. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly when done. Place the meat in a large resealable bag and place in the refrigerator.After removing the meat from the fridge allow it to warm to room temperature before cooking on the grill. We prefer to let the seasoning work its way into the meat for 4-12 hours (very rarely more than 12 hours).
We always recommend that if you're using this seasoning for the first time that you start off with a bit less than you think that you need. Because we're using freshly ground spices and blending in small batches, our seasonings can be very potent. You can always add more seasoning if you'd like.
