I have lived in East Texas for almost 7 years now. And there is a great collection of food flavors around here. We have Tex-Mex of course and a lot of southern comfort food. And with Louisiana being so close, we also have a lot of Cajun influence.
Now I eat Cajun food, but I don’t normally cook a lot of it. In fact, until recently I had never cooked any!! But in the last month or so, I decided to start experimenting with some of those flavors. I made gumbo! It was pretty good. And I made Cajun Crockpot Chicken, recipe coming later this week and it was good too!
So if I’m going to experiment with Cajun flavors then I needed a good Creole Seasoning, right? I could have gone out and bought some but I figured it would be easier to make my own. It is super easy and as Kerry has talked about making your own seasoning mixes can save you a lot of money.
- 1 Tablespoon onion powder
- 2 Tablespoons garlic salt
- 2 Tablespoons dried oregano
- 1 Tablespoon dried basil
- 1/2 Tablespoon dried thyme
- 1 Tablespoon black pepper
- 1/2 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 2 Tablespoons paprika
- In small bowl or jar, combine all ingredients. Mix well.
Be sure to check back on Wednesday for a chicken recipe using this seasoning. It turned out really, really yummy!
