Make your own Creole Seasoning

You’ve probably noticed by now that a lot of the recipes here call for Creole seasoning. Outside of Louisiana and many urban areas across the US, you might have a hard time finding it so here is a recipe to make your own. the following is loosely based off Rex brand Creole seasoning.

Creole Seasoning

2 tablespoon Kosher salt (you may use less salt, folks in south-east Louisiana are notorious salt fiends)
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons dried onion
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a mason jar. Will keep for upwards of a year if you use fresh spices.

  1. I’m reading your Creole Seasoning and I once had a recipe I made myself using Foltz Coffee, Tea & Spice and Yogi as guides. They both had ground cloves in them and I thougth they were the best ever. Now not one recipe I find has cloves. Bill Moran San Diego, TX

  2. My husband loves the Foltz Brothers Fajita Seasoning from the Foltz Coffee, Tea and Spice Co., Inc. Can you tell me where we can purchase it, and if there is a website.
