Magic Dust



All I can say is this stuff truly is magic.
This is a recipe used in many barbecue joints.
It really is a great all purpose seasoning for just about 
anything and I mean anything.
I have used it on french fries, which is my favorite, roasted potatoes, 
veggies, pork, burgers, and chicken.
The possibilities are endless.

If you don't like a little heat in your spices and food,
you can cut back on the cayenne pepper.
I am all about the spice in this though.
I think it needs it and there is just the right amount.




Ingredients
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons mustard powder
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup ground cumin
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1/4 cup granulated garlic
2 tablespoons cayenne




Directions
Mix all ingredients and store in a tightly covered container. 

To make it a little more hot and spicy, increase the mustard powder and black pepper to 1/2 cup each.

Makes about 2 1/2 cups


PS....have you noticed my new backdrops?
All the pretty wood ones I have been using?
Guess what....they are not wood!
They are vinyl and a food bloggers dream!

  3. I love making my own seasonings too! I make my own taco seasoning. And where did you get the vinyl "wood" backdrops? They look lovely, I never would have guessed them to be vinyl.

  4. This sounds like it might be similar in taste to Tony Chachere's cajun spice mix? If so.. yum! I really like the idea of being able to adjust the amt of salt and heat in it.
