The Best Seasoning Mix Ever

This is one to keep on hand at all times. So versatile. Besides, it helps use up those spices that will only lose their mojo because you never use'em anyway.

3 tbsp paprika
1.5 tbsp onion powder
1.5 tbsp garlic salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp kosher salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp ground ginger (optional)

This mixture works on just about anything grilled, veggies, fish, beef, poultry or pork. It's even good on popcorn (mixed with a little grated parm).

For variety and versatility try these easy modifications (no more need to spend eight bucks on "E's" special BAM!

Blackening - add one more tbsp ground black pepper, a tbsp of white pepper, one more tsp cayenne, and one more tbsp of paprika
BBQ - add two more tbsp of brown sugar
Texican - add 3 tbsp of ground cumin and one more tbsp of chili powder

The mixture will keep, in an air tight container, for about 3 months.

Side note: be aware of the amount of salt you use, garlic salts vary. I try to err on the conservative side and add as the situation requires. Salt - you can always add, but never take away.
