The benefits of Salty & Spicy spice is that it's got the BIG FLAVOR but without all of the sodium. If you add too much Tony's, you end up with a dish that's too salty - so to prevent that, I'd say you need to get some organic spices from Slick Rick - and try something a little different (and a little better for YOU.)
Move over Tony, make room for Slick Rick.
As much as I try to create unique dinners for my family - there's no avoiding the basics and the go-to / easy fix for side dishes. For us, it's the creamy goodness of Velveeta Shells and Cheese. My daughter will eat half a pot of macaroni and cheese "as-is." Me, on the other hand - I need to add flavor and kick it up a bit. Previously, I've used black pepper, then I switched to Tony Chachere's - but the salt content in Tony's makes it too salty for me. Hot sauce made it too spicy. When I brought home Slick Rick's "Red" Spice that's supposed to be an everything-spice - I decided to try it.
I think that's the beauty of Slick Rick's spice blends, is that the possibilities are endless - and they are a solution to make the simplest, every-day recipes or 'out-of-the-box' fixes taste A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Salt and pepper - you're moving to the back of the cabinet.
