Devil's Dust

This is a fabulous spice mixture for grilling and sauteeing vegetables and meats. Paprika is the key ingredient. 

This recipe is best if you make your own sweet and spicy paprika powder. (Yes, you have to grow the peppers yourself, dry them, and grind them, but it's like no other paprika you've ever tasted.) If you haven't the patience to make your own paprika, then buy a good quality paprika. If you live in an area that has a lot of Mediterranean stores, you'll probably find a good one that is more affordable than your local grocery store. 

This recipe makes about 2-1/2 cups. Combine all the ingredients and store in an airtight container.

1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup chili powder
2 T. sugar
3 T. salt
1 T. ground black pepper
1 T. cayenne pepper
2 T. ground coriander
2 T. curry powder
2 T. mustard powder
2 T. dried Italian herbs (mixture of basil, thyme, oregano)
1 T. cumin
2 T. garlic powder
