RECIPE NOTES AND HELPFUL TIPS:

Use authentic Cajun spices like paprika, cayenne pepper, thyme, and oregano to give your soup an authentic taste.

Choose a good-quality chicken or vegetable broth as the base of your soup. Homemade broth is ideal, but a high-quality store-bought option works well too.

Be cautious with spice levels. Start with a small amount of cayenne pepper, taste, and adjust accordingly. You can always add more spice later, but it’s challenging to reduce it if it’s too much.
