Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dehydrated toasted onion ground
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder (gives a nice smoky taste with heat)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried lemon peel* ground with a little texture

Instructions

  • The method depends on if you are grinding your own spices OR purchasing them ground.
  • I grind my own spices to achieve the perfect consistency.
    I use a spice grinder, and grind these herbs and spices so they have a fine coarsely-ground consistency - but not too ground that it's a powder.
  • To Make:
    Combine all ingredients well. Add salt to your liking.
    Store in a glass container with a tight seal away from heat or light.

Notes

When spices are ground right before using - the best and freshest blend is achieved.
And - the freshness of the spices is important too!
*Lemon Rind: You can dehydrate the peels, then grind.
 Alternately - finely grate the rind, place on a piece of parchment paper
and air dry in the sun.
