Tips & tricks
Adjust the heat. Super-spicy foods aren't for everyone- especially me! I enjoy foods with a kick, but not so spicy that they will bring me to tears. Luckily, this seasoning is both mild and easy to customize.
To adjust the heat in this recipe, use more or less cayenne pepper. Use more cayenne pepper if you want it spicier or use less if you want less heat.
If you don't want it spicy at all, leave the cayenne pepper out completely.
- Measuring Spoon Set. Easily measure seasonings and spices with my favorite measuring set!
- Empty Spice Jars. Store your homemade seasoning in an airtight container to preserve its flavor and freshness.
This homemade seasoning can be stored in an airtight container for up to a year. I like keeping all of my homemade seasonings in mason jars for easy storage!
Whenever I make Cajun Seasoning or Taco Seasoning, I always double the recipe so I always have some on hand. It's so convenient for lazy days or when I just don't have the time!
