I like the spice mix from Penzeys Spices called Arizona Dreaming. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on making this spice mix at home.
Their website gives these ingredients, so this would be a start:
ancho chili pepper, black pepper, onion, garlic, paprika, spices, cumin, citric acid, Mexican oregano, cilantro, lemon peel, chipotle pepper, red pepper, jalapeño, cocoa, natural smoke flavoring.
For the natural smoke flavoring, you could use Wrights or Colgin liquid smoke, or smoked salt.
By the time you buy all of those ingredients, it might be cheaper just to buy the spice-mix itself (unless you already had most of them on hand for other uses). It’s cheaper if you buy it in the plastic bag and just refill the bottle.
thanks for all the info.
