  • 2 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  1. This recipe will yield about 10 tbsp of seasoning. Nutritional information is per tbsp.
  2. To properly store your cajun seasoning, grab a sealable jar or spice container and make sure it's completely dry. Spoon or use a funnel to transfer the seasoning to a jar, and seal the lid. Keep the jar in a dark, cool environment.
  3. Since seasonings are completely dried, you can keep them in the pantry up to 4 years.
