"I love this on chicken, and it is great on frozen french fries! I am always running out of this because I use it so often. I use the entire 2 tsp. of cayenne because I like the heat. I bought McCormick cajun seasoning to compare the two, and there is no contest. This recipe is better than the store-bought mix. WAY better!"
