This Homemade Chipotle Seasoning (paid link) 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 powder (paid link). Chipotle powder (paid link) 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 (paid link) in the grocery stores, but you can definitely find it on Amazon. I use either McCormick Gourmet Brand (paid link) or my favorite Out of Mexico which comes in a larger container.
What recipes use my Homemade Chipotle Seasoning?
On the Go! Crustless Chipotle Egg Cups
Delicious egg cups that you make and freeze. When you’re looking for a quick breakfast, just pull one out and microwave for a minute.
Even Better Than Granny’s Meatloaf
I’ve lightened up my meatloaf recipe and made it healthier. Freeze these into mini loaves for a quick meal later.

Delicious scones make the perfect breakfast, appetizer or quick snack. Because they are mini size, you won’t blow all of your calories/points in one setting.

I love having these sliders on hand in my freezer. They make a quick lunch or dinner and are great as an appetizer if people drop by unexpectedly.

Tacos! What more can I say! So easy with the Homemade Chipotle Seasoning (paid link)!

didnt have chipotle powder but did have chipotle sea salt so just left salt out and added the sea salt instead…still has a delicious smokey flavour. doing cedar plank grilled salmon.
I’m so glad!The chipotle sea salt sounds wonderful! Thanks for commenting!
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.
I’m so glad! Thanks so much for telling me! I really appreciate that!
