I was the weird kid that really truly enjoyed these. I learned early that the Redder The Better because there was more flavor on them.
So I went looking, found lots of recipes on how to make this, and ended up tweaking to get this recipe.
It's the powder that you sprinkle on potato chips to turn them into BBQ Chips after putting it in the oven.
I have been dipping tortilla chips into it and knocking off the "excess" the last couple days and, Yeah!, pretty darn good too!
This is a smallish recipe, and can be scaled up easily if you find you like it.
I bet it could also go into a cheese shaker or a salt shaker for use as a condiment on the table.
I know I like this on a baked potato, and the little bit I need isn't enough for me to worry about the calorie count, or whatever else is in it.
Yes, there is salt and brown sugar in the recipe. Depending on how you use it, it's possible that the salt can be left out.
You know... season to taste? Especially good on bland foods.
Oh one last thing that I noticed when I put that pic together? It's a great way to use up your old or out of date spices. If you look at that pic really closely... you will notice that the date stamped on top of the Onion Powder is 2013. It's now 2017.
