It’s time to spice up your weeknight dinner routine. Whether you’re feeling stuck in a rut of the same ol’ dishes or just want to expand your flavor profile, we’ve got four new, fast, easy, and super flavorful dishes to add to your rotation. They all use our new shortcut spice sampler that was created to make flavorful meals in a pinch, without needing to buy a ton of spices to make popular restaurant dishes like Shawarma-style sandwiches or Jerk shrimp.
The four expertly balanced blends are inspired by Chrissy’s favorite flavors: Jamaican Jerk á la by John’s Jerk chicken; Cracked Black Pepper & Citrus to add zip and brightness to anything; Shawarma-Style to ensure juicy, warm spiced meats every time; and Chili-Garlic that takes a cue from Pepper’s favorite Thai combination. These recipes take 30 minutes or less to make, all thanks to the jam-packed flavor each spice blend brings to the table. Say goodbye to a pantry full of barely used spices and hello to deliciousness, packed into four stackable cans for your convenience.
Take the street meat experience home with tender grilled chicken sandwiches. The mix of garlic, onion, chili, turmeric, warm spices like ginger and coriander, and much more all combine into a dynamite blend inspired by Middle Eastern flavors that you’ll reach for over and over again. No matter what type of meat you use, you’re just one shake away from stuffed pita greatness.
Fries for dinner? Yes, please. Get them nice and crispy in the oven, sprinkle on plenty of zesty, smoky, and slightly spicy Cracked Black Pepper & Citrus seasoning, and then load up with all the fixings. You can either set up a fry buffet for your family or friends to mix and match, or you can choose for everyone by adding a combination of toppings like chicken, cheese, sour cream, corn, bacon, and guacamole.
Shrimp and corn is already an iconic combination—especially in the summer months—but it’s even better once you add a hefty sprinkle of Jamaican Jerk seasoning. It’s nice and spicy, complete with allspice, cinnamon, oregano, and more, with a little brown sugar for a balance of sweetness. Grill it all up for a quick dinner that’ll transport you to a beachside BBQ.
Noods are never a bad idea. This vegetarian dish uses mushroom as a hearty, meaty element, spiced with Chili-Garlic seasoning that packs a punch. Adding an egg on top will give you extra protein, plus another place to sprinkle this ultra garlicky spice with a Pepper-approved level of heat. You may breathe fire after this one, so proceed with caution.
