📌 Tips

  • Chili powder will vary in flavor depending on where it’s from.
  • Be sure to grab quality spices for your seasoning. This ensures optimum flavor. Cheaper seasonings often lack flavor and quality, making the seasoning taste weak and lacking.
  • You can use regular paprika in place of smoked paprika, but I highly suggest smoked paprika as it adds a delicious component to the mixture.
  • Fine sea salt is my favorite when it comes to this seasoning, but any salt that isn’t coarse salt is great. Coarse salt might make it too salty, so proceed with caution if using it. Remember, you can always add more salt, but you cannot take any away.
