3 tablespoons dried minced garlic

2 tablespoons red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon sea salt

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons smoked paprika


  1. Toast minced onion. Combine all ingredients. Let sit for a few days before enjoying


This is a bit spicy, if you are sensitive to spice, use 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes and let sit a couple days, taste, then add more red pepper flakes if desired.
