Dry Roux Chicken, Sausage, and Okra Gumbo

The #1 best thing about winter is that you can eat gumbo every day and not get tired of it. But let’s be real we make gumbo year round but it’s EXTRA enjoyable when there is snow on the ground.

Baked & Crispy Cajun Chicken Taquitos

Sometimes a dinner that feels like a snack is what we’re craving. When that happens, we make these Cajun Taquitos seasoned with Tony Chachere’s products and dipped in Tony Chachere’s Ranch. If you haven’t tried that ranch yet, you’re missing out!! It’s SO good.
