Make Your Own Cajun Spice Mix with this easy recipe. It's perfect to add a little cajun flavor to everyday meals like chicken, burgers, etc. or use it for traditional Louisiana favorites like gumbo, red beans and rice or jambalaya.

 

There are several reasons you may want to make your own cajun seasoning.  For one, it can be a lot cheaper to make your own mix from spices you already have in your kitchen.  Personally, I also like it because I can control how hot and spicy it is.  If you like it super spicy you can add more cayenne pepper, or  even throw in some red pepper flakes.  Any way, if you make your own cajun spice mix you can use it to add a little cajun flavor to everyday meals like chicken, burgers, etc. or use it for traditional Louisiana favorites like gumbo, red beans and rice or jambalaya.
