1. What is Jambalaya?
What is Jambalaya?
One of my favorite dishes from Southern Louisiana is the 2nd Line classic: Jambalaya. Not only do I love all the spice that the dish packs, but I love how easy it is to make. Once you've got the ingredients, you can produce the dish in under two hours time, which isn't bad considering it can be made in huge batches to feed a crowd. The most unusual ingredient in the dish is a type of ham widely found in the bayou, known as Tasso. While it's hard to find locally, it's easy to order online, and adds a huge amount to the dish.

6. Easy Sloppy Joes
Easy Sloppy Joes
Sloppy Joes are often the target of sandwich snobbery€people just don't believe they're in the same class as clubs, Reubens, or even hamburgers. Which is a shame, because these hot, messy sandwiches are delicious. Sloppy Joes may be known as lowbrow cafeteria food, but they’re still delicious. To make these satisfying hot sandwiches, cook bell peppers, onions, and garlic until softened; add tomato paste; and then brown ground beef or turkey in the same pot. Add a few seasonings along with Worcestershire and tomato sauce, and simmer until the flavors concentrate into a sweet, tangy mixture. Pile a generous helping on a toasted bun, top with our Cabbage and Carrot Herbed Slaw, and don’t forget to tuck a napkin under your chin.
