Add a little spice to your Life. “ Rico”

Rico’s Rub and Seasoning Blend and Rico’s Vegetable seasoning.

Rico’s Rub and Seasoning Blend is an all purpose spice blend similar to seasoning salt. It is great for BBQ. Just sprinkle a little on the meat and add your favorite BBQ sauce. It makes the best BBQ wings ever. Use it just like a good salt. A little bit goes a long way. It’s also great with ground beef. Two teaspoons in a kilo of hamburger, mixed well with a little bit of Worchestershire and you have the best burger ever. With 11 different fresh and hard to find spices it’s easy to use and great.

Rico’s Rub was developed from a recipe originating at the Lucerne Cooking School in Switzerland. Passed down from chef to chef, it is old world European Sensibility adapted for today’s cuisine.

Rico’s Vegetable Seasoning Blend was developed for the vegetable lovers as a primary vegetable seasoning. A little more aromatic and less spicy than the original rub, it has 13 different spices to form a great blend. Just sprinkle a little on your favorite dish before cooking. It is also great with seafood. Just use it as you would season with salt and pepper and add great new flavors.

Rico’s Rub and Seasoning Blend and Rico’s Vegetable Seasoning make cooking easy and fun; adding great flavor with a light touch of the hand. It’s like having your whole spice rack in an easy to use package. Check us out also on Facebook at the Rico’sRub page.
