    1 teaspoon ground oregano;
    1 teaspoon chili powder;
    1 teaspoon black pepper;
    1 teaspoon basil leaves, crushed;
    1 teaspoon marjoram leaves, crushed finely.

    Directions: Combine all ingredients as listed in a small jar with a tight fitting lid (baby food jars work good). Shake mixture to combine. Stores for months. Keep out of direct sunlight, heat and humidity.
