This super easy homemade Cajun seasoning is perfect for anyone looking to make their condiments at home.
One of the best things about making your own seasonings at home is that you’re able to adjust the ingredients to more your liking.
Like any seasoning, you can make this in bulk and keep it in the cupboard for when you need it. Just make sure you store it in an airtight container to avoid the seasoning losing flavor and going stale. I find if I store it for long enough it may start to clump together, and it’s still okay to use if it does this.
There are so many uses for this seasoning, so it’s the perfect one to keep in the cupboard for whenever you need it. It’s ideal for use in something like the delicious chicken and chorizo jambalaya.
If you don’t feel like making this at home, then you can find Cajun seasoning for sale at the supermarket. If you can’t make it to a supermarket, then you can buy it online at any good store such as Amazon.
I haven’t done a video for this recipe, but it’s super straightforward. All you need to do is measure the ingredients out and mix them.
