I gotta say Gumbo as well, second is red beans and rice with Louisiana hot links. And for the record, I do use okra in my gumbo, seafood or chicken.
Third, is BBQ chicken or chicken links. I love to make my own sauce.

This is what I'm talking bout..,

  • Seasonings. Tips and seasoning ingredients from the native Indians, and Caribbean and African cooks helped give birth to Creole cooking. Africans introduced okra; the Spanish, spices and red peppers; the Germans, black pepper and mustard; the Irish, potatoes. In addition, file powder came from the Choctaw Indians; allspice and peppers from the West Indians; and garlic and tomatoes from the Italians.

Thanks for the lesson Omowale. Its so interesting to know where our spices and foods originated. I love me some okra ... anytime, anywhere!

Yeah nonc, I got to have okra in my gumbo regardless if seafood or chicken also. I generally "sweep da kitchen" and make gumbo with everything in it. I don't separate chicken and sausage from seafood and okra.

I love to do bbq. I use pecan with hickory for my chicken or mesquite and red oak. My dad, brothers and I have an ongoing BBQ pit masters competition. I am at a disadvantage because I don't have one of those good big pits but I still put in work.

I want to start a bbq joint. Vegas don't have any good bbq and I would sell Natchitoches meatpies as a tapas too. Ever had tamales from Zwolle?
