  • ½ cup mayo
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Louisiana hot sauce

Cajun seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and sour cream until smooth. Then add mustard, minced garlic, lemon juice, and hot sauce. Stir to combine.
  • Add all of the cajun seasonings to a small bowl and mix them together well, then add them to the large bowl with the mayo mixture.
  • This dip can be served immediately, but the flavor will improve if it sits in the refrigerator overnight.


You can substitute one tablespoon of store-bought Cajun seasoning, but that is typically loaded with salt, which throws off the flavor of the dip.
If you love the idea of a spicy dipping sauce, feel free to use extra hot sauce, or swap out for a hotter sauce.
