Regional cooking in Louisiana gets even more regional with lots of proprietary pepper mixes made in various parts of the state, says MakingSense. One of the popular spice mixes is Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning. There’s a regular version and a white pepper version, and it’s “a quick and easy way to get a little Zydeco in your kitchen,” says MakingSense. It’s great for jambalaya, or to put on pork chops, fish, or just about anything. Use a light hand and enjoy!
