Cajun stew is an easy skillet meal you can make in very little time for any weeknight or anytime you want a great quick dish for your family. Cajun Stew

This Cajun stew makes a lot but part of it could be easily frozen for another time or you could try cutting the recipe in half.  The men in our family can put away some food so we try to make enough for everyone.  I have always said Southern cooks and country cooks don’t know how to make a little bit of something and they cook like they are feeding an army.  I can remember my mother making a large canning pot full of fresh green beans and new potatoes from the garden and we ate them for a week!  You might also like to check out my recipe for Cajun cabbage jambalaya.
