Mexican spice mix.
It doesn’t happen all that often, but when I get the urge to cook something Mexican I usually fluke it by throwing together a bunch of spices I know generally belong to the category. A bit of this, a bit of that, really.
I know it’s very easy to go to the supermarket and buy those spice mixes in yellow packets and sachets – you know the ones I’m talking about – but when it’s made by your own hands it tastes infinitely better. Plus you know exactly what’s going into it.
Mexican purists may collectively gasp at how inauthentic my mix is, but let’s just say this is my interpretation of the flavours of Mexico.
