Chipotle Seasoning

This Homemade Chipotle Seasoning is a great seasoning to have on hand. Use it as a rub for steak, chicken, seafood and roasted veggies. It’s also in my Chipotle Cilantro dressing. If you don’t like it spicy, use a less chipotle pepper.

Recently I realized that many of my recipes use this seasoning. It’s so versatile!

What is chipotle seasoning made of?

My chipotle seasoning is made with chipotle powderChipotle powder consists of jalapeño peppers which have been dried, smoked and ground. I combine it with a few other spices for a unique Chipotle flavor.

How to make chipotle seasoning mix?

It’s easy! Just combine all of the ingredients and store it in an airtight container. When I make a batch, I actually make 5 times the recipe and store it in an old large Costco Spice container.  I use it that much!

Where can I find the chipotle powder?

I don’t often see the chipotle powder in the grocery stores, but you can definitely find it on Amazon. I use either McCormick Gourmet Brand or my favorite Out of Mexico which comes in a larger container.

    I used this in a recipe for vegetarian chili as a substitute for chili powder. I already had the chipotle powder, but thought it would be too hot for the dish. Worked perfectly.
