I wanted to start a thread so people could share their own homemade seasoning mixes.

I am a sucker for those McCormick packets, but as I've started IP and learned to read the entire list of ingredients, I am not so happy about all the extra junk they include.

I've started searching around for homemade mixes and was thinking others may be interested in getting this info and some may want to share their own.

Please feel free to share what you've created!

I've used this on chicken and it's excellent on roasted veggies or as a seasoning for your salad.

Homemade Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix

Ingredients
2 Tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp pepper

Directions
Add each of the dried spices to a bowl and gently stir.
Store in a resealable plastic baggie or small ball canning jar with tight fitting lid in your spice cabinet.

Makes about 4 Tbsp worth of mix. Or use the ratios above and mix up however much you’ll need!

Ingredients
1 tablespoon chili powder
teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon onion powder
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
teaspoon dried oregano
teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Directions
Mix together all ingredients. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
When you are ready to use use your Homemade Taco Seasoning, use about 2 tablespoons per 1 pound of meat. Feel free to add more or use less, I just found that to be the sweet spot :)

Brown your beef and drain off fat. Sprinkle seasoning evenly over meat and add ⅓ cup of water. Simmer until water is adsorbed.

Stacyjblack, these look delicious!!!

I didn't come up with this one, Rainbow did, but it is my absolute favorite dressing!!!!

1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp amino acids or tamari soy sauce (soya works too)
3/4 tsp of each: cilantro paste, red chili pepper sauce, ginger paste, lemongrass paste, garlic paste.
sprinkle celery salt, red pepper flakes and poppy seeds.

I didn't have celery salt or poppy seeds and it was still delicious!!!

Jerk Seasoning
This is good for chicken and pork and fish. It's close to what I'd use off diet but it still tastes good.

Rub:
1 table spoon thyme
1 table spoon smoked chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of allspice

DH made jerk chicken and used pretty much these spices but then added a little bit of WF maple syrup to make it a glaze and then bbq'd the chicken. It was really, really good

I've used a mix of the WF balsamic and a bit of their ketchup to do essentially the same thing. You can also add a touch of El Yucateco Red Salsa Picante hot sauce for a real kick, but my wife doesn't like that as much as I do.
