Louisiana Inspired Creamy Cajun Sauce
Cajun sauce is probably one of the most popular flavors in America. It is right up there with barbecue and buffalo wings, and everyone has their favorite version.
My personal favorite is this creamy cajun sauce, which uses mayonnaise as the base instead of cream cheese like most others do. This gives it a lighter texture and greater versatility during cooking (it won’t separate like heavy creams do). Plus, since it’s made with mayo instead of cream cheese, you can use less oil or cook it longer without worrying about curdling! Read on for more details on how to make this delicious sauce at home!
What is Cajun Sauce
Cajun sauce is a spicy condiment that is commonly used in cajun cooking. It’s made with tomato sauce, onions, garlic and salt and pepper. The sauce can be used on meat or seafood dishes to add flavor to them. What makes this spaghetti sauce so decadent (well, other than the cream). By reducing a sauce, liquid is evaporated and the tastes are concentrated. Two distinct reductions are used in this recipe.
How to make Sauce Creamy
To make this sauce creamy, you’ll need to add some cream cheese. Don’t worry—it’s not as bad as it sounds! Just mix 1/2 cup of softened cream cheese with 3/4 cup of milk and pour the mixture over your cooked pasta.
When making this recipe (or any cajun recipe), remember that it’s always best to cook your pasta al dente so that they stay firm; otherwise they will become mushy when mixed with creamy ingredients like mayonnaise or sour cream.
All you need to do to prepare this hot sauce is combine everything and store it in the fridge.
To allow the flavors to meld and blend, I like to chill it for at least an hour.
Before making any flavor adjustments, I would advise letting the sauce chill because the taste will vary as the ingredients meld in the fridge.
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup ketchup (we recommend Heinz)
1/2 cup water
- Melt butter in a sizable skillet (I use my Lodge cast iron skillet).
- Melted butter should be used to sauté bell pepper and onion for about five minutes, or until onion is transparent.
- Stir in the flour and Cajun seasoning until bubbling. Just toss and simmer for about a minute if the mixture is really thick.
- Whisking, gradually add broth.
- Boil for one minute after bringing to a boil.
- Get rid of the heat.
- Stir in the heavy cream after adding it.

This recipe makes enough sauce to cover two pounds of meat (like chicken breasts) or four pounds total if using shrimp instead of chicken breasts. It makes about 2 cups worth — enough for at least 8 servings when served over rice with vegetables on top!
This recipe is the perfect amount of heat, but you can add more cayenne pepper for a spicier sauce or less for a milder one. You can also adjust the butter by adding more if you like creamy sauces, or less if you prefer something thicker.
