This Creole seasoning blend is easy to make and can be used in a range of recipes with rice, meats and stews. Or you can put in in a jar and give as a gift.
Made it more kid friendly. I've made this as elementary school teacher gifts for the past two years, and the teachers love it. I omit the cayenne and halve the amount of black pepper, then call it "Kid Friendly Creole Seasoning." I keep a batch of this in my cabinet and use it in many things: steak on the grill, baked chicken, in soups and stews, while cooking ground turkey or ground beef; anytime a little kick is needed. I even used it on my Thanksgiving turkey. Thanks for the recipe! Even my picky 6-yr old and 8-yr old kids eat this. Note: to reduce the salt, use Kosher salt; gives it a nice texture without as much salty taste. - 29 Sep 2008
Watch out Emeril, Joslyn's in town. I was concerned this would be too spicy with all the chillis, but it's just the right kick. It worked great on the Oven-Fried Catfish recipe on this site. I mixed two tsp seasoning and 1/3 cup ranch dressing for a dip for cauliflower. SO YUMMY! Halving the recipe will make plenty to last a while. Fun to put together. Did look great as a mix. Add to mayo or ranch dressing for any kind of dip. Perhaps it was just a bit salty tasting. Might do a pinch less next time. - 29 Sep 2008
