I initially got part of this combination from a Food Network show, and have added a few things along the way. I call it "Spicy Rice" and my husband loves it. It makes normal steamed rice much less bland. The step by step process allows all the ingredients to cook into the rice. I usually take into consideration the entree I'm serving it with before I add the Cajun Seasoning. It's a personal preference. All ingredient amounts can be adjusted according to taste.
