Ever since I started making my own seasoning blends, I haven’t looked back! Compared with store bought, they’re way healthier, much more cost effective, and they taste so much better.
I’d like to show you my super easy recipe for homemade Cajun seasoning!
Since this is one of my favorites, I’m sure it will be one of your too!!!
Not only is this seasoning mix so versatile that you can use it on so much more than Cajun cuisine, it’s also:
- Free of binders & fillers
- Naturally gluten free
What are the ingredients in Cajun seasoning?
- garlic powder & onion powder
- crushed red pepper flakes
- dried oregano
- paprika & cayenne
How do I make a homemade Cajun spice mixture?
- Combine ingredients and store in an air-tight spice jar.
What is the difference between Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper?
Cayenne pepper is an ingredient in a Cajun seasoning blend, so cayenne pepper is a part of the spice blend commonly used in creole cuisine.
But cayenne pepper stands on its own as a spice that is used to make recipes spicy. It can be used alone, or in spice blends.
What Cajun seasoning is best?
This one, of course! Trust me, making your own homemade spice blend is so much tastier, healthier and cost effective than buying store bought brands like McCormick.
