Tony Chacheres Cajun Seasoning

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.

Thanks , good to know.
I use Tony's Cajun seasoning, but be careful if you use it as a rub. Too spicy for some tender palates.
we put it on our fried spuds in morning - cant ask for anything better
Thanks! Does it really taste just like the store bought shaker can??? If so, then that is indeed a good one to know.
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 taste...black pepper etc..
