  1. Just the average spice mix....nothing grand about it. Thanks for sharing the recipe though.
  2. I mixed this up today and sprinkled a good amount on Ore-Ida's tater tots to go with the Ruby Drive Sloppy Joes we were having for dinner. Good stuff! I served it with my homemade ranch dip it went well together.
  3. Great cajun seasoning! However, I too cut the salt in half, and used Italian seasoning instead of oregano (because I didn't have plain oregano). I used this for the Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce recipe from this site (I reviewed that, too). I didn't add the red pepper flakes but I wish I had - Read more ...

  8. A great mix of spices except like others I'll be cutting the salt in half. My boyfriend mixed it with plain breadcrumbs and coated chicken breasts in it and they were delicious except for the salt factor. We didn't add the red pepper flakes but I think we might next time for a little extra - Read more ...
  9. Excellent. Used for Cajun chicken Pasta from this sight and on hash browns. I will continue to use this recipe.
  10. This made great cajun spice. I used this to make cajun-mayo for cajun spiced burgers and made some cajun shrimp. I only used half the salt. I used the crushed red pepper flakes and we didn't consider this too hot at all. This made enough for both dishes and there is plenty left for a - Read more ...
