Chipotle Seasoning

Homemade Chipotle Seasoning in a white dish

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
