Cuisine: Jason's Zesty Spice Rub

I pulled this blend together inspired by Emeril Lagasse's Emeril's New New Orleans Cooking. I blended the Southwest and Cajun seasonings together and added my special secret ingredient and VIOLA! a special spicy spice rub.

Enjoy it rubbed on pork chops, steaks, chicken breasts, catfish, etc. It is also great in rice and beans, soups, chili, and any other recipe that calls for either Southwest or Cajun seasoning.

1 TBSP and 1/2 tsp spicy paprika
2 tsp bittersweet paprika
2 tsp smoked chipotle powder
2 tsp red pepper powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
2 TBSP salt

Combine all ingredients in an air tight container and shake until all ingredients are mixed together.
