Spice Blends....gotta have 'em.

Updated: Jan 14, 2020

Spice blends are essential because they add flavor to meals, have zero sodium and save you time and energy. The Fajita Spice blend is used to make fajitas. Simple grill veggies and apply a generous about of the spice blend the last few minutes of cooking. Its also perfect to spice up anything....rice, beans, even scrambled eggs. The Salsa spice blend is used when making my ULS Salsa (see the recipe page for ULS Salsa). The BBQ Rub is great on chicken, steak or roasts. Simply rub it on and grill as you normally would.

I keep these spice blends 'on tap' by multiplying these recipes and storing them in12 oz mason jars. When traveling, I will pour some of each into small zip lock bags or containers.

Here they are......

Fajita Spice Blend

1 T chili powder (possible hidden sodium. check what's in your chili powder)

1 1/2 t cumin

1 t ground black pepper

1/2 t smoked paprika (aka spanish paprika)

1/2 t dried oregano

1/4 t garlic powder

1/4 t onion powder

optional for spice - 1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes

Salsa Spice Blend - this is used in my ULS Salsa. See recipe blog.

1 T ground cumin

1 1/2 t smoked paprika

1 T sugar

BBQ Rub Blend

1/4 C brown sugar

1/4 C smoked paprika (aka spanish paprika)

2 T ground black pepper

2 t garlic powder

2 t onion powder

1/4 t cayenne (optional - adds spice)
