Copycat Nacho Doritos® Seasoning Mix  – Mexicali inspired!

Copycat Nacho Doritos® Seasoning Mix – Mexicali inspired!

You’ll love this! Like nachos but hate the calories, chemicals and preservatives? Here’s the spice combination for you! I use it on vegetables, rice, quinoa, baked potatoes, in dips and spreads…you name it! Besides, you can avoid these:

Silicon Dioxide – a free-flowing agent.  Some think this could cause blood issues.

Maltodextrin – can lead to gastro intestinal problems

MSG – reportedly can lead to brain cell death

Natural Flavors – these can be just about anything — including the “brain-cell-killing” MSG

Modified Food Starch – typically sourced from wheat (a gluten concern), or corn (a GMO concern)

Hydrolyzed Proteins

Why have your food topped with Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Red 40, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate? Make this easy 4 ingredient spice mix, plus, salt and pepper! You might like to use it on this recipe: Mexicali Quinoa.
