Mardi Gras and Gumbo are near synonymous – rarely are either mentioned (or eaten) without the other quickly coming to mind. The key to a good gumbo is a roux – a mixture of flour and fat that is cooked until varying shades of brown to add thickness and flavor to the dish. Try this quick and easy Chicken and Sausage Gumbo for your Mardi Gras bash.
Another renowned New Orleans dish, Red Beans and Rice, is a filling, flavorful and fun meal in and of itself. You can make this traditional Louisiana Red Beans and Rice or try a tasty twist on the classic with this Maple Balsamic Red Beans and Rice with Turkey Sausage.
