Hey peeps! One part about life in South Africa that doesn’t sit well with my American stomach is the lack of Mexican food! No....I’m serious here! The cravings are enough to get me on a plane some days!
Unfortunately, I can’t reason spending a years salary for one meal! ;-) So, I have to learn to make due!
Prepackaged foods are ridiculously expensive here! A single package of taco seasoning (which is enough for one packet of mince) costs me the same price as 3 loaves of bread! Therefore...I decided to improvise!
I created my own recipe after scouring the internet and checking out a few (hundred) other versions! I’m not saying mine is the best...but well, you’ll regret ever having bought one, that’s for sure!
2 tbl Chakalaka Seasoning (you can substitute Chili powder here)
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp mixed herbs (parsley, rosemary, oregano, basil....a dry mix)
1 tsp paprika
2 ½ tsp cumin
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp peper
Mix everything together and store!
It’s so simple and easy! I got enough out to make two taco dips and two batches of enchiladas!
I really hope you enjoy this and that it helps in creating that real Mexican feeling!
