Variation: Hot 'N Spicy Seasoning II

1/4 cup paprika
2 tablespoons oregano
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Mix all of the spices in a bowl and store in airtight container. This seasoning mix tastes good on meat, poultry, or fish. Instead of salt, sprinkle some on the food and then cook it as you usually do. Or, mix some with plain bread crumbs and then coat the meat with the crumbs...yum! If you want a little less bite to the spice, add less chili powder, or more if you like it hot! hot! hot!
