Spicy Cajun Mayo

Spicy Cajun Mayo is a fast and frugal way to add a bit heat to your favorite sandwiches and burgers.

It is no secret that I adore spicy food but when you’re feeding young palates that isn’t always an option. I like to do what I can to make just my serving of the meal spicy. That often means brushing a bit of spicy barbecue sauce on grilled chicken or burgers, adding pickled jalapeño or hot sauce to my tacos and burritos, or whipping up a flavored mayo for burgers and sandwiches.

I’ve got a few flavored mayonnaises that I make depending on what they’re going on or being mixed with. Spicy Cajun mayo would be great on a grilled chicken sandwich, salmon burgers, and I have a Southern spin on a traditional BLT coming soon that begs for the flavor.

Two ingredients and about five minutes are all you need to whip up this crazy easy spread.  You will notice there is an additional optional ingredient. I added a bit of cayenne pepper because my Cajun seasoning mix is kind of old and doesn’t pack a punch anymore. I will be buying a new container soon but the cayenne pepper was a good temporary work around.
