I also use Fiesta brand and if I had to pick a 'Holy Trinity' for cooking Mexican/TexMex - It would be Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Comino/Cumin.
Ironically none of those are native to the Americas.

If I were to pick a holey trinity for Mexico it would be Maize/corn, chilies and tomatoes.
Maize by far is the number one thing people of many parts of Mexico live on.
They even have a book Men Of Maize/Hombres De Maize.
