Taco spice mix

Although you can buy commercial mixes that are GF (check the Coeliac FoodandDrinkDirectory) it's much nicer to make your own and very Simple.  Most recipes use powdered garlic and onion, but I don't keep these in the house and fresh work fine. Shallots have a more concentrated flavour than normal onions and work well:

1 tbsp chilli powder
2 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 shallots
salt to taste
mixed pepper, to taste (red and black peppercorns)
