Cajun Spice Blend

Paprika is the base for this smoky Creole spice blend that's hot and very flavorful. Use it to spice up your meats and vegetables. For the best results, use a quality paprika. Many of the imported varieties have either a sweet or pronounced spicy flavor, use a blend or go with the sweet.

Better yet, this spring, try planting a variety of paprika peppers and dry them for your own ground paprika blend. It's easy to do, and the results are a flavor masterpiece.

1/2 teaspoon chipotle pepper powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
