This super easy homemade Cajun seasoning is perfect for anyone looking to make their own seasonings 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 flavour and going stale. I find if stored long enough it may start to clump together, it’s still fine 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 perfect 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 straight forward. All you need to do is measure the ingredients out and mix them together.
