The recipe is so simple to make and doesn’t take very much time at all. Yet it packs a huge punch in the mouth with flavor. I really like mine a lot extra ‘cajun’ so personally I double up on the chili powder and double up the paprika. It gives that extra flavor and heat that I am accustomed to when I hear the word cajun. Now do not get me wrong, the way the recipe states will definitely hit you in the taste buds like a blow torch. But if you love spicy like me then you might want to think about add the extra kick. Anyways let’s get to what you came here for.

  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper to taste
