Cajun Seasoning

Cajun Seasoning_600f

I love to make my own homemade seasoning mixes.  I store them in airtight containers and use them whenever I want to add a little spice to my meals.  Store bought spice mixes often contain additives, preservatives, MSG, and/or sugar.  Making your own is easy to do and you can feel good about the ingredients being used.

Another great thing about making your own seasoning mixes is that you can customize it to your tastes.  If you like a lot of spice, add more cayenne and make it your own.  The seasoning mix is great on scallops, pork chops, and chicken.  You could also use it in a gumbo type soup….with cauliflower rice instead of regular rice.
