Ditch the Mix Spices

Cajun Seasonings and More

cajun spice mixCR

I needed a cajun seasoning for a recipe I made a while back, but I haven’t bought it in quite some time.  So, I found this recipe for one and it was spot on.  Plus, I try to turn the heat down a bit for the kids.  My son loves the spicy salsa verde at Qdoba though!  Here are a list of other successful seasonings I have used from my pantry.  It’s funny …and sad … how much stuff you can make from a well-stocked pantry…

I keep my jars of apple butter and throw them in the dishwasher.  Jars make great gift containers or for holding your spice mixes.

Cajun Seasoning

2 Tb. onion powder
2 Tb. garlic powder
2 Tb. dried oregano
2 Tb. dried basil
1 Tb. dried thyme
1 Tb. ground black pepper
1 Tb. ground white pepper or black pepper
3 tsp. cayenne pepper
5 Tb. paprika
4-5 Tb. seasoning salt (like Lawry’s)

Mix it up.
