Mesquite Seasoning Blend

I generally make my own season blends so I can control the salt content and as much as I love some of the store bought combinations, they never pack the flavor punch that I can create.  Here is my newest favorite, a mesquite and herb blend that has tons of flavor and is 100% salt free:

1 T. mesquite flavoring ($.35)
2 tsp. each: oregano, onion powder, granulated garlic, black pepper ($.25)
2 T. California sweet paprika ($.20)
1 tsp. each: basil and fennel seed ($.05)
3 tsp. cumin ($.05)
1/2 tsp. cayenne, optional ($.05)

Mix together, store in a sealed, airtight container.
Yields: 1-2 batches, enough to season 3-6 pounds of meat, poultry, or veggies.
Cost: $.95
