Ingredients for Creole Seasoning


Store bought might do in a pinch, but it’s always better when you can make your own spice mixes.  You can control the salt levels, eliminate preservatives and avoid MSG altogether.  As if those aren’t incentive enough, making your own mixes also lets you add in or amp up what you love.  Garlic is your jam (yes, please)?  Add a little more.  Like a little heat (or maybe less)?  This is your show now.  You’re calling the shots!



A jar and spoon of creole seasoning

And make more you will!  You’re going to love the way this creole seasoning mix livens up your favorite dishes.  Use it as a rub on chicken thighs before you put them on the grill.  Work it into your hamburger patties.  Add a quick dash to your white rice.  If you can dream it, you can use this mix to spice it up!  You’re gonna want to sprinkle a little of this on everything!
