Tony Chacheres Cajun Seasoning

By eman, Oct 30, 2010 | |
  1. This is the recipe for Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning in the green can that most of us use.

    1-26oz box of salt

    1-1/2 oz fine ground black pepper

    2 oz cayanne pepper

    1 oz garlic powder

    1 oz chilli powder

    1 oz msg (accent)

    Mix well and use like salt.

     when it's salty enough, It's seasoned to perfection.

    This is from Mr. tonys cook book  from 1972.

    I live in Southwestern Louisiana! You can cut the salt by adding more spices and less salt.. for no salt user's ..maybe a salt substitute or no salt at all! When I make my seasoning I leave out the accent/msg and use less then 1/2 of salt..substituting with onion powder and other spices too pepper etc..

    Thanks! Does it really taste just like the store bought shaker can??? If so, then that is indeed a good one to know.

    I use Tony's Cajun seasoning, but be careful if you use it as a rub. Too spicy for some tender palates.
