What are you cooking for Cinco de Mayo? Our guess is that you’ll be using at least one of these spices to create your festive dishes.
Did you know that conventional spices may contain “concentrated toxic pesticides, GMOs, synthetic anti-caking agents, and chemical additives”? - Vani Hari
Because of this, we strongly recommend our Peter Rubi Approved organic spices from Frontier Co-Op.
Here are our top five favorite organic spices that are sure to perfect any Cinco de Mayo dish!
1. Organic Coriander
Fun fact: Coriander is the seed of cilantro. Many people use coriander to give great flavor to plant-based tamales or enchiladas. Additionally, Coriander may help to lower blood sugar, boost the immune system, and aid in digestion and gut health!
2. Organic Cumin
Cumin is a seed that is a member of the parsley family. Cumin is a rich source of iron and has been correlated to promote weight loss, aid in diabetes, and improve blood cholesterol. Cumin adds a delightful, warm aroma and flavor to dishes. Season your eggplant and barbeque mushroom tacos, chili rellenos, or loaded veggie mexican pizza with this spice!
3. Organic Chili Powder
Chili Powder is great for hardy dishes! Use this spice in beans, rice dishes, chilis, or cauliflower ceviche to name a few! Frontier Co-Op makes their Chili Powder using a rich blend of chili powder, cumin, oregano, coriander, garlic, rice concentrate, allspice, and cloves (all of which are organic!).You can’t go wrong with this chili powder masterpiece! Chili Powder may also help with inflammation, digestive health, heart health, and even nasal congestion!
4. Frontier Organic Taco Seasoning
This is one of our favorite blended spices!! Use it in butternut squash tacos, Mexican black bean soup, quinoa wraps, veggie burritos, or fajita tacos! To make this flavorful spice, Frontier Co-Op uses classic ingredients that are staples to many of our favorite Mexican dishes such as onion, chili peppers, garlic, paprika, and more!
5. Red Pepper Flakes
Red Pepper Flakes are not only great to add some heat to your Cinco De Mayo dishes but also to spice up your health!
