Ree Drummond openly admits on her blog that she is pretty particular about her potato soup. She doesn’t like it lumpy or too creamy. And it has to be brimming over with flavor or Drummond will “die a thousand deaths.” We’re with The Pioneer Woman on that one; flavor is key to this soup. You will find the usual suspects on the ingredient list for Drummond’s potato soup: potatoes, heavy cream, chicken or vegetable stock, chopped onion, and celery. But in addition to the salt and pepper to season the soup, Drummond adds a Cajun spice mix.
Thrive Cuisine describes Cajun spice mix as adding elements of smoky garlic and pepper to your dish and notes that every mix has its own level of spiciness, but they all provide a little cha-cha-cha for your taste buds. But what exactly is in a Cajun spice mix? Gimme Some Oven says everyone has their own take on this Louisiana born seasoning, but in general, a Cajun spice mix consists of paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, pepper, and oregano. Sounds pretty flavorful to us. So, the next time you make a pot of potato soup and you want to add a little oomph to it, sprinkle in a little Cajun spice mix.
