No need to buy a package of pre-mixed cajun spices. If you’ve got a spice rack/drawer/bin going, you probably have all of these ingredients already. There are so many cajun spice mixes out there, so I looked at a whole bunch of them and used the ingredients they all have in common, then added the ones that I thought would make it taste the best. I happened to be staying with friends who had gumbo filé in their collection, but it’s not necessary to add if you don’t happen to have it in your rack/drawer/bin.
I’ve used this mix on my Cajun Pecans and in Cajun Quinoa Stuffed Peppers.
What you need:
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 & 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
1/2 teaspoon gumbo filé (if you have it)
What you do:
1. Mix it all together! Store it with your spices.
