Southwest Seasoning

Jump to Recipe

This is our favorite southwest seasoning blend and I use it to add a kick to anything from scrambled eggs to tacos. I usually mix it up in a double or triple batch and keep it on hand at all times.

Tips to Make it Your Own

This recipe is a great place to start and feel free to make adjustments as needed. If you like a spicier blend, use chipotle powder OR add a little cayenne to the blend.

How to Use This Blend

On Meats

Aim for around 2 tablespoons per pound of meat. This seasoning goes great on chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, and even fish.

On Vegetables

Use around 2 teaspoons per cup of veggies. For an instant southwest side dish, toss chopped veggies with olive oil on a sheet pan and sprinkle liberally with the Southwest Seasoning.

On Scrambled Eggs

Use this seasoning to give a southwest flair to scrambled eggs, quiches, and frittatas.

In Guacamole.

To whip up a simple tasty guacamole ad about 1 teaspoon per avocado. I like to add in a couple of spoon fulls of my favorite salsa as well.

As Taco Seasoning

This makes the perfect taco seasoning, add 2 - 4 tablespoons to a pound of browned ground beef with a ¼ cup of water and let simmer or try it in our Southwest Beef and Squash With Corn.


2 tablespoon sea salt

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons cracked black pepper

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

2 teaspoons oregano

3 teaspoons onion powder

3 teaspoon cumin

4 teaspoon garlic powder


Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl then transfer them to an air-tight container such as a small mason jar or spice jar for storage.
