- ½ teaspoon Ground Cumin
- ½ teaspoon Paprika
- ½ teaspoon Ground Coriander

Seasoning blends will taste best if used within 6 months (but most can be safely stored in a cool, dry place for up to a year).
Serving size: This recipe makes enough to season 1 lb. of meat or any dish that will serve 4 people. Want to make a big batch? Use the handy slider next to “servings” above to customize the measurements.
Storage: A glass or plastic container saved from store-bought spices works great for storing your own seasoning blends. I have been using 4-oz mason jars for all of my spices and seasoning blends for nearly a decade. It’s inexpensive and looks super organized.
Salt and Black Pepper: It’s up to you if you’d like to add salt and pepper to this seasoning mix. If you prefer, you can make and store the seasoning without these - just be sure to add them later when you use the seasoning in a recipe.
