This is a blend of spices I put together one day to have on hand for seasoning meats and vegetables. It worked so well, I now keep a jar for adding spice to all sorts of foods. It's especially good on pork chops, steaks, avocados, guacamole, corn on the cob, tomatoes, salads, etc.
3 Tablespoons of Wegner’s Seasoned Salt* (or Lawry's Seasoned Salt if you must)
1 Tablespoon of ground Cayenne pepper
1 Teaspoon ground Cumin (Comino)
1 Tablespoon Garlic powder
1 Teaspoon Onion powder
1 Teaspoon ground Nutmeg
1 Teaspoon Celery salt
1 Teaspoon Spanish Paprika (hot paprika)
Store in an airtight shaker to retain freshness.
