Homemade cajun seasoning

Cajun seasoning from eat good 4 life
Happy new year to all of my family, friends and followers. It has been a really hectic couple of days but I am really glad to be back home :-)

Do you have any new year’s resolution goals? I have a few, and lets see if I can stick to them. So far so good!!

I have been wanting to make Cajun seasoning for the longest time and I really don’t know why I waited so long. I have seen many different variations so for now I just stuck with a basic one. Next time around I may add some coriander and cumin powder to see how it tastes.

I will be using this seasoning for rice, chicken, fish, pasta etc. I most likely will have a rice dish using this spice in the next couple of weeks. We eat a lot of rice dishes in my house so changing it up a bit with this home made Cajun seasoning sure it would be good.

Anyhow, I hope everyone had a great holiday season with family and friends.


I got this little spice containers a while back from Ikea. Now I am glad I can use them!

Mix all spices together with a spoon until well blended. Store in a sealed airtight container.

  1. This is great! I’ve made my own cajun seasoning before but since lost the recipe so I’m going to bookmark yours to use next time. I love making my own because then I can tone down the heat and add more to the final dish. Sometimes I like more flavor than heat so this is a perfect way to get just what I want :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cajun seasoning is my go to seasoning when I want spice! I am going to pin this so I have the recipe!

  3. If only my husband weren’t addicted to Tony Chachere’s! I’ll try this if we ever run out. It’s one of those things I have to stock up on when I’m in Texas.

    I don’t have any resolutions, but my goal of eating more vegetables still stands. I just don’t like vegetables other than corn and potatoes. But they don’t really count.

    I hope you’re having a super year so far!

  4. Thank you for sharing. Cajun Seasoning is my my favorite. I will be using this seasoning for rice, chicken, fish, pasta etc.

  5. This looks like it’s worth a try but how much of it should I add per cup of raw rice?
