Sure, pumpkins aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about traditional Mexican cuisine, but did you know that pumpkins are believed to be indigenous to Mexico and other parts of South America? This, combined with the fact that we all get a little craving for pumpkin spice in the Fall, inspired us to create this pumpkin spice mix with chile powder. Add it to your coffee in the morning, mix it with some nuts, add to a baking mix, or add a dash to the whipped cream you’ve loaded on your slice of pumpkin pie. We’re sure you’ll think of a few other creative ways to use it and spice up your favorite Fall foods.
This pumpkin spice mix is one of our easiest recipes, and it’s made easier by the fact that you can get every ingredient you need right here at Don Juan Chiles. Feel free to tweak the provided ratios to your liking to make this mix sweeter, spicier, or even more savory. Regardless, it’ll be good all season long as long as you store it in an airtight container.
