Todd’s Dirt Bayou Dirt:
Creole Seasoning & Spicy Rub

Todd’s Dirt Creole Seasoning and Spicy Rub Makes For A Great Seasoning on Grilled Chicken

Prior to this recipe, I’ve not been a big fan of any “creole” seasoning, but Todd’s Dirt Bayou is awesome and it turned me around. Seriously, I now like and look forward to trying creole seasonings, thanks to Todd’s Dirt Bayou Rub! As I write this review, I’m craving it.

I coated some chicken breast strips with the Bayou Dirt seasoning with the goal of cooking them “blackened’ style and I was not disappointed.

I do love me the “blackened” seasoning on almost anything… shrimp, burgers and now chicken. Take these chicken strips and dip in a moutard / mustard dip, and I’m in heaven!

If you sprinkle it lightly on chicken, you’ll get a great Cajun seasoning, but if you really layer it on, you get the blackened effect… my favorite!

The heat level in this rub is medium to medium-hot. The more you use, the hotter it will be. And it’s a super clean tasting, delicous heat.
It doesn’t burn my mouth so much as it makes my head sweat. Quality heat, folks! Just a great product.

Todd’s Dirt Bayou is also great on french fries. You will love it. If you have a Five Guys Burgers and Fries near you, they use a lesser quality cajun seasoning on their fries… trust me, Todd’s is superior. As a matter of fact, the label says it’s “good on Steak, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Fish, Seafood, Chili, Ribs, Vegetables and more”. It also says “use the Bayou Dirt as a rub when you are grilling or Barbecuing”.

I’m going to order more of the Bayou Dirt, as well as Todd’s other seasonings – the original and Crabby. Can’t wait to try those!
