I put this together because I found myself using these same seasonings a lot in everyday cooking and I finally got tired of adding things separately! I use (with a tablespoon of olive oil) to season water before I steam greens or corn, to roast potatoes or yams (cut into 1/2 inch cubes and toss with olive oil), as a dry rub on meat for bbq, and in soups to add a little extra kick. It tastes similar to the seasoning they use in some restaurants for French fries. I use it pretty liberally because I like extra spice, can be used more sparingly if you like less. Start with a tablespoon and make it yours!

This is a great universal spice mix that could be used for many different things as the recipe submitter said. I do recommend starting with only a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and adding from there if necessary. I did find this to be a tad too salty so I will cut back on that the next time I make a batch. I used this on french fries last night and plan on using the rest as a meat rub. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing! Read More
