Lots of great uses for this spice mix

I use this spice mix in my Killer chicken tacos and in my Southwestern turkey and grilled vegetable salad. My daughter's friend, Deena, uses it to liven up her sandwiches. My sister Becky spices up her shrimp tacos with it. My friend Jenny uses it instead of packaged taco mix. I give it out as presents and hostess gifts. I recommend making up a big batch as you will find all kinds of great uses for it. Use only Spanish smoked paprika (pimenton de la vera).

 

The key to this spice mix is the Spanish paprika. You can use hot or sweet, depending on your preference, but do not substitute regular grocery store paprika. They are not the same animal!
