Notes

*If you have a spice grinder, you may pulse the blends for Lemon + Herb and Sweet + Spicy Thai.
Each blend is enough to season 8 oz (or one 8-8.5 oz bag) of kettle chips.
Each blend calls for just a pinch of salt, plus more to taste. Start with just a pinch in the blend, season the chips, then taste a chip to determine if they need more salt.
