Ingredients for Louisianna Crawfish Dip
Use these simple ingredients to make a delicious sauce for your Louisiana crawfish tails:
- Mayonaise – I definitely recommend sticking with mayonnaise and not miracle whip.
- Ketchup – Not much to say about this – just plain ol’ ketchup.
- Horseradish – Using prepared horseradish in this dip adds a little kick to it. The more you add, the tangier and spicier it will get.
- Creole Seasoning – My favorite pre-mixed cajun seasoning blends to grab at the grocery store are Tony Chachere’s, Nunus, or Slap Ya Mama. You can also make your own homemade cajun seasoning blend if you have a few basic pantry seasonings.
- Worcestershire Sauce – You’ll just need a few splashes for this dish.
- Hot Sauce (Optional) – Sometimes I like to add a few splashes of my favorite hot sauce to this cajun sauce. It adds a little extra spice and tanginess.
