If you’re looking for a way to elevate the food you are cooking, look no further than the ingredients you’re using to make them. Using fresher ingredients always results in better tasting food. It’s a given to use fresh meat and produce when making a recipe, but few consider making their seasoning mixes from scratch. This Homemade Cajun Spice Mix is really quite simple to make and it makes a world of difference in how your Cajun food tastes.

This Homemade Cajun Spice Mix is easier to make than you think and will really add some kick to your next Cajun dish!
