One of my all-time favorite spice blends is cajun seasoning. I love it because it combines a mixture of my favorite spices and is great on pretty much anything. It adds a subtle spicy flavor and color to just about any dish. Over the years I’ve shared lots of delicious Cajun spiced dishes on the blog and I’ve had many requests for my favorite Cajun spice blend.
This mixture is pretty much the BEST combo of spices that you can make and beats any supermarket mix in a heartbeat. It’s versatile and requires only a couple of spices you probably already have in your pantry. It isn’t overly spicy or bland and is elevated with the addition of onion flakes. If you don’t have onion flakes on hand, feel free to use onion powder. If you don’t have either oregano or thyme, feel free to switch them both out for Italian seasoning.
