Make Your Own Cajun Seasoning
Cajun Spice Mix Ingredients:
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 1/2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to how spicy you like it)
Optional: 1/2 – 1 tsp crushed red pepper
How to make Cajun spice mix:
Mix all spices together and store in an airtight container. Use in any recipe calling for cajun or creole seasoning – or add it to your own creations!
If you are making multiple spices of your own (or if you buy spices in bulk) these glass spice bottles have a shaker top built in. Perfect for storing spices and they’re inexpensive too! They also make a great gift idea for anyone who likes to cook OR for those learning to cook because seasoning mixes makes anything taste better with no effort required!
For a super easy way to fill your spice bottles, use a Silicone Mini Spice Funnel. These have a no-clog large bottom opening for fast pouring. I have tried in the past to just pour spices directly into the bottles or to use a piece of paper I have folded into a cone shape and it can be a big pain in the neck. The funnels make it a lot easier and they can be repurposed for other things in the kitchen like combining other spices or condiments.
