This blackened spice rub is really tasty, try it out from our article on homemade spice blends. You probably have the majority of the spices in your cupboard already. I am not a huge fan of buying the pre-blended spice mixes because we already have the spices we need to create them. If I bought a new spice blend every time I wanted to makes something my spice rack would be out of control.
