We have used Tony Chacheres Seasoning as long as I can remember. It is a foolproof seasoning to use in your gumbo and I recommend you always have it in your pantry.
Whether it's seafood gumbo, chicken gumbo or greens gumbo, this extraordinary blend of flavorful spices will make your creations taste great. The recipes on this site will use this great seasoning because it is an easy, fast and delicious way to add salt and spice up your gumbo.
Don't worry about making things too hot. Just follow the amounts listed in the recipes and your gumbo will be perfectly seasoned. I always have a container on the dining table for my family and guests who like to add a little more salt or spice. It can be added to the bowl at the table and allows your diner to season to taste in a jiffy.
And it's not just for gumbo either. Use it for any recipe or to enhance the flavor of meats, seafood, poultry, eggs, and salads. When we serve potato salad as a side with gumbo there is always a little Tony's used to spice it up.
