The garlic, onion and black pepper are friends to begin with but it's the Paprika that makes it warm and friendly to your nose and mouth! Bring all these flavors together in the right blend and you have a base for all your sauces, meats, and veggies! I like to use it in my hamburgers to add that wonderful warm almost barbeque taste without over spicing my meal! Try in your Meatloaf, stuffed peppers or even your roasted garlic bread! Oh, man!
