Happy Halloween from us – to YOU! Here’s an easy and spicy-good treat for ALL the trick-or-treaters in your family!

Don’t worry about having to buy the wide variety of spices used in this recipe  – the seasoning mix is not only wonderful on potatoes – its also great on a piece of fish or chicken. (Make a double recipe and save some for cooking later in the week.) Plus, when you add the smoked paprika to the other spices, it power-packs the blend! The high Vitamin C content can help your body absorb the iron in the fish or chicken.

Smoked Paprika is one of our favorite spices. It’s got a great smoky aroma and meaty taste and is a super substitute for meat or pork. The paprika pepper is 6 times higher in Vitamin C than tomatoes! As an antibacterial agent and stimulant, paprika can help normalize blood pressure, improve circulation, and increase the production of saliva and stomach acids to aid digestion.
