This recipe is from Chef Emeril Lagasse, of Emeril's and NOLA Restaurants in New Orleans. The seasoning blend is incredibly aromatic and has a wonderful flavor that ideally suits dishes from the southwestern United States. I use it a lot.
Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
- 2 tablespoons chili powder, or pasilla powder
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon ground coriander
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
Buy Chef Emeril's book Emeril's New New Orleans Cooking, published by Random House, and see how he uses this seasoning blend. Once you try his dishes, be inspired to create your own! In fact, you can order the book online by telnetting to Amazon Books, so do yourself and your dinner guests a favor and buy it! He's got a marvelous new one as well, entitled Louisiana Real and Rustic.
