McCormick Italian herb baked chicken and pasta.
McCormick chicken taco
Great Value (Walmart brand) mild chili seasoning mix
Goya Sazon

The Sazon was a complete waste of money based on the 2 times I tried it. I can barely tell a difference in taste with or without it. It mostly changed the color of the rice.

All of the other seasonings worked great. I use 1/2 the envelop each time and just needed a dash of salt.
We used to get McCormick stuff over here but they disappeared some years ago. I particularly miss their bell pepper sauce for chicken.

Your post has had me thinking of a few ideas that might work out for you.
Only a few spices are required. I to can be spiced challenged as to who much to add and when. I've learned to pour just a small amount into the palm of my hand. Add a few pinches at a time until it's where I want the recipe to be at.

So, for a few meal ideas. Real simple, easy spices.

Salmon fillets
Cabbage rolls- You can shred the cabbage if you want
Baked squash
Porcupine balls
Potatoes with a mixture of several bell peppers



If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.
