2 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Whatever you don’t use, store in an airtight container.

Kosher salt, to taste
Chili powder, to taste
about a pound and 1/2 lean ground beef
2-3 garlic cloves, smashed and minced
