The proper seasoning can make or break a meal. Sometimes it is hard to remember what herbs and spices pair best with what meats. When you add vegetables to mix, it can become even more confusing. What you need is a good all purpose seasoning blend that works wonders with a wide variety of ingredients. This blend will work well with most anything you make.

  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Mix together all ingredients and store in an airtight container for up to six months. If you prefer a finer blend, grind the thyme and oregano together using a mortar and pestle before adding to the remaining ingredients.
