Essential Spice & Herb Mixes

EssentialsMeghan ColvinComment

There are two homemade spice/herb mixes that every kitchen should have: Mexican Spice Mix and Italian Herb Mix. And it’s important to emphasize the homemade part. Not only is it painfully easy to make these, but they’re so much healthier than store bought versions that usually contain artificial flavoring and preservatives. These two versatile mixes are a staple in our recipes and you’ll see us referring to them often. 



  • 3 tablespoons Paprika Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Onion Powder

- ITALIAN herb MIX –


  • 1/4 cup thyme
  • 1/4 cup oregano
  • 1/4 cup basil
  • 1/4 cup parsley 

Mix each set together and store individually in mason jars. It’s that easy.
