I think you showed remarkable restraint! I'm probably lucky that the nearest Penzy's is 7 hours away.

I like McCormick's taco seasoning. I also blend my own Emeril's. I have a lot of different blends. A friend started a spice business with a local chef, and gifted us with a number of their products.

I make my own Emeril's blend also, with less salt.

I've gotten into five spice powder. And not just for asian recipes. It's excellent on chicken among other dishes.

Different brands vary. The one I use is simply labelled Five Spice Powder and contains Fennel, Anise, ginger, cloves, cinnamon. Obtainable here in Chinese markets.

I went a little crazy the only time I've been to a Penzey's store. Bought several small jars of their blends. Then there are the samples they send with orders. The ones I've restocked are Northwoods and Northwoods Fire and Santa Fe seasonings, good on vegies and chicken or pork. Also their jerk chicken & fish, and chili powders, and sweet and hot curry powders.

We like Spike also. I sprinkle it and a little cheddar cheese over steamed broccoli and cauliflower, and use it in a chicken divan-ish casserole. I put Spike or Northwoods on home-canned green beans.

I forgot to mention this as one of my favorites. It's the perfect blend of salt, chili and lime. It's just terrific all by itself on roasted chicken, and also on fresh fruits or just about anything.

Thanks Kay! I figured I would bathe in it first. Have never seen it here, and one of my girlfriends was so excited to gift me with it! The Iittle bottle is habanero, she said it's muy caliente.

Before I saw the pic, I knew what you were going to show. Tajin is fantastic on any fruit, meat, dairy. I love it stirred into V-8 juice. I was able to get a package of the small bottles to put in my work lunch box.
