These ingredients go together in seconds and costs nothing (extra) since everything needed is already in your spice rack!!
1/4 cup kosher salt
4 teaspoons coarse ground black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika (smoked paprika if you have it)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (not salt)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder (not salt)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
Mix everything and store in a small jar....couldn't be simpler.
Note about the cayenne: This mix is definitely NOT spicy. Picky-picky husband is very heat-shy when it comes to his food, and he thinks this salt blend is great. If you want more kick, you can double the cayenne.
