Tasty Notes By SpiceRally…
- If you don’t like salt in your blend, you can skip it. Or, if you want more salt, feel free to add another teaspoon or so.
- Although we have used both sweet and smoked paprika here, you can just go with one variety, depending on what you have in hand.
- If you wish to make your blend hotter, increase the amount of cayenne pepper. We have used paprika and cayenne pepper in a 2:1 ratio here. So, for more hotness, you can go in a 1:1 ratio. That is, use 02 tablespoons of paprika and 02 tablespoons of cayenne pepper.
- For an extra kick of flavor, you can follow up with some ground cumin, chili powder, jalapeno powder, etc.
- When stored properly in an air-tight glass spice container/jar, this Cajun seasoning could last well up to one year.
