Everyone should have a good spice cabinet. And in that cabinet, you need a good Cajun mix. This one is a smaller adaptation of one my mom always makes. I make a smaller amount, because while I do use it, I just don’t use it as much as she does. You can always double the amount if you like and store in a larger container.
I used a wide mouth pint jar with a reusable plastic lid. I simply poured all the ingredients in, covered tightly, and then shook all until it was fully blended. If that container is too large to store in your cabinet, pour some in a smaller bottle and then store the larger one in the pantry.
I like to sprinkle a little on rice or pasta dishes for a little kick of flavor. I also use it in every Cajun dish I grew up on. Like Gumbo, Dirty Rice, and Jambalaya! So Yummy! Y’all Enjoy Ayeee!
