You can buy the seasoning already mixed together. But if you want to make your own, just combine the following:

2 teaspoons ground paprika
4 teaspoons dried leaf thyme
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper, or to your taste
1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

This will make way more than you need for this recipe, but if stored in an air-tight container, you should be able to keep it for a while.
