I have a standard spice mix used in almost everything I cook. The ingredients vary from time to time, but the basics include granulated onion and garlic powder, ginger, celery seed, coarse ground pepper, smoked paprika, and chipotle chili pepper.
I have the preference of not adding salt to my spice mix. I like to add my salt separately and to taste. Sometimes I want things full of spice flavor, other times just a pinch of spice. If I were to add salt, I may over salt a food when I want it spicy.
You can modify the recipe to your own taste. Don’t like ginger, don’t add it. Want things spicier? Add more smoked paprika and chili pepper. Other spices I use from time to time to mix things up include corriander, turmeric, ancho chili powder (milder than chipotle), and ground cardamon. All add a different personality to the spice mix. My motto, EXPERIMENT!!!
