Special Keto Cajun Spice Mix
I was working on a recipe for The Keto Option Family Edition cookbook. Well, let me back up. If you have not heard about my project, let me tell you quickly! I am working on a 3 part cookbook series called The Keto Option. It is made up of 3 books: Dessert Edition, Family Edition, and Freezer Edition.
ANYWAY, I was working on a recipe for the Family Edition book and I needed a cajun spice. The spice is optional, of course, since not all kiddos can handle spice. BUT, mine can and I know some families start spice early.
So I did some trial and error to find the perfect blend of spices to constitute a cajun spice. And that I did! The perfect blend.
Now, below is a beautiful picture, right? Do you notice anything missing? Sigh....
I put the ingredients in there, took some pictures, mixed it up, took some more pictures and went on my way. Until.... I realized I forgot the cayenne.
Just pretend the red shown below is a mix of paprika AND cayenne. Never fear, I did add it before completing the recipe taste test.
I love having spice mixes on hand. A variety of mixes. There are so many packaged spice mixes that contain sugar, corn products and even gluten.
I always had 2 types of spice mixes on hand:
Krug's Spice (basically, a general spice rub for any occasion) - a fun mix of pepper, chipotle pepper, ginger, onion powder, garlic powder, and sage. We use this as a meat rub primarily.
Fajita Spice - even though I named this fajita spice, it is more all-purpose than that. I use it for fajitas and burritos bowls mainly. It is a mix of cumin, chili powder, sage, garlic powder, paprika, basil, chipotle chili powder, salt and cinnamon (yes cinnamon).
And NOW, I have 3 spice blends that are must in my kitchen.
This one, though, packs quite a punch so be prepared (in the best way)!
Let's jump right into this spicy blend of goodness!
- Mix ingredients together well!
