Why is there a copycat recipe of Tony Chachere's Seasoning? There is no need for reverse engineering. Tony, himself, provides the EXACT recipe in his cookbook,Tony Chachere's Cajun Country Cookbook available on Read the reviews. He notes in the cookbook that the recipe itself is worth the price of the cookbook. I have used the recipe for over 20 years and it is exactly as it is when you purchase the container in the store.
