We have tummy issues in our house, that’s no secret, so we follow a Low FODMAP Diet most of the time, which means we quite often have to make spice mixes etc from scratch.  This BBQ SPICE MIX is a favourite in our house… so much so that I make a triple batch and store it in a jar in the pantry so that it’s easy to grab on a busy night and I can throw it over pretty much any meat to give it a burst of flavour!  So… grab a clean, empty jar and make up some BBQ spice mix, stick a ribbon around it and this is a brilliant Father’s Day Gift for dad this weekend!


Texan BBQ Spice Mix

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons ground smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons dry chilli flakes if you like it spicy!

Simply add them all to a clean, dry jar or airtight container, shake to mix all the spices and enjoy!
