Flavor Profile: earthy with a complex chile base that is savory and spicy, slight garlicky undertone with hints of onion
The key to an authentic Mexican seasoning always begins with the proper use of Mexican chiles. A typically “American” taco type seasoning is more likely to have New Mexico or California chiles as their dominant chiles forming the base. These blends tend to be much milder and the flavor profile.
A top grade authentic Mexican seasoning is going to have some combination (usually three) of ancho, pasilla, guajillo, mulato and chipotle chiles. These chiles are best known for their complex layers of flavor more than for their heat levels (with the exception being the chipotle chile which does pack some heat). You’ll also find many Americanized Mexican seasonings use a bit too much cumin which tends to overpower the flavor profile as well. We use our freshly ground cumin in much smaller amounts as a way to enhance and not dominate the other flavors.
