Meera of MeeraSriram.com: Turmeric, homemade mix (of turmeric, chilli powder, corriander seeds), cumin, mustard seeds and asafoetida.
Frances of Discovering the World Through My Son’s Eyes: Kosher salt, pepper, garlic salt, cumin, thyme, sage, and of course, for Puerto Rican dishes: adobo (mix of garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, dry orégano brujo) & sazón (mix of grounded salt, pepper, garlic, culantro, coriander, cumin, oregano, annatto (achiote))

Cecilia of Spanglish House: For cooking, Garlic, Ginger, cinnamon, salt, pepper, hot pepper, oregano, parsley. For teas I use cinnamon, anis, chamomile, and peppermint.
Christi of Learning to Be the Light: Not sure it really qualifies as a spice, but aji amarillo is my go to! I add it to everything
Alyson of World Travel Family: Cinnamon, not in sweet things, in anything tomato sauce based and Indian curries. I’d say chilies, I have them with everything, but they are a fruit, not a spice. Then all the curry spices, cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, cardamom, coriander seed etc.
