When seasoning your burrito meat you need some extra because burritos are a whole meal in a tortilla.

The meats, vegetables, and rice rolled into a tortilla. So do not let the main ingredients get lost in the tortilla you need a good seasoning mix. That is what we are making today.

Besides it is way cheaper to make your burrito seasoning recipe because there are not a lot of burrito spice mixes you can buy in the store.

It is very easy to find seasoning for:

You can also make all of these seasoning mixes yourself. But burrito spice mix is not that widely available in a grocery store.

How To Make Burrito Seasoning

If you have looked at the other seasoning mixes on the Tortilla Channel you know that it is super easy to make your own spice mix.

The main part is that you have the ingredients available and measure them according to the recipe.

I use these cute nest measuring cups from Joseph Joseph because they are stackable and do not take up a lot of space.

This seasoning recipe calls for a little heat. You can use either Cayenne pepper or hot Chili powder.

Be aware that there is a different Chili powder used in American recipes which is usually a spice mix in itself whereas in Europe Chili powder is a one ingredient hot spice.

So if you have the hot chili powder in your kitchen pantry you can use it else use Cayenne pepper or chili flakes.

Put all of the measured spices in a bowl and stir it through. Stir for at least a minute to make certain all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

You want to prevent that one tablespoon is spicier than the second tablespoon just because you did not stir it through.

Put the homemade burrito seasoning mix in a mason jar glass jar and store it in a dry dark place like a kitchen cabinet.

How To Use Burrito Spice Blend

To use this seasoning in your recipes start with adding 1 tablespoon of seasoning to your meat, poultry, or pork.

Depending on your taste you can add more. As a rule of thumb, you can add 1 tablespoon per half a pound of meat, pork, or poultry.

How To Store Burrito Seasoning

The best way to store this burrito spice mix is in a glass jar. You can use these super cute small glass spice jars or small plastic food containers.

Store the spice blend in a dry and dark place like your pantry or a kitchen cabinet or pantry for at least 6 months.

Do not store it in direct sunlight, a radiator, or near a stovetop.

When you store spice blends in direct sunlight or heat the seasoning will turn hard and change color.

This affects the shelf life of your seasoning and the taste.

    Question on the burrito seasoning. How much of the mixture do you use per pound of hamburger generally?

      Hi Lynn,

      I use about 2 tbsp of seasoning per pound of beef. When the meat is cooked I always have a little taste and add if needed.

      Hi Diane,

      When I use this burrito seasoning in my recipes I use between 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water. I usually add seasoning, then 2 tablespoons tomato puree and then water.
