Cajun seasoning is a blend of black and cayenne pepper with onion, garlic, and other herbs. Because many brands are high in salt, look for a salt-free version.


  • 4 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 2 cups bite-size square rice cereal
  • 2 cups dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free Cajun seasoning
  • 1 cup snipped dried fruit


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a large roasting pan, combine popcorn, pretzels, cereal, and peanuts; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and Cajun seasoning. Drizzle butter mixture over popcorn mixture; toss gently to coat.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring once. Spread mix on a large piece of foil to cool. Stir in dried fruit. Makes about 20 servings.

Make Ahead Tip
