Can be used for anything which requires a Mexican-inspired zing. Use it by the tablespoon, don't be shy!
1 part cayenne
1 part chilli powder
4 parts cummin seeds (or 3 parts if using pre-ground)
5 parts coriander seeds (or 3 parts if using pre-ground)
3 parts dried oregano
6 parts hot paprika
1 part cocoa
2 parts salt
Bash everything together in a mortar and pestle or Flavour Shaker (TM) (sorry about the product placement but they really are very good) or just use all pre-ground spices and stir until well combined. Store in an airtight jar. Works better if toasted lightly before adding other ingredients.
