Mexican Seasoning

I got tired of opening several containers (and then closing several containers) to season Mexican food the way I like it. So I bought all the seasonings, whisked them in a bowl, and poured them into a large parmesan cheese shaker I bought at the dollar store. Doesn't matter how much you make, just use equal parts (one jar, or a half-jar) of each of the following:

one part coriander
one part cumin
one part chili powder
1/2 parts garlic powder
one part onion powder
1/4 to 1/2 part cayenne pepper (depending on how hot you want it) OR
1/4 part hot chili mix plus smoked paprika

Now I just liberally dust whatever I want to have that Latino flavah, and add salt. Done!
