N’awlins Seafood Gumbo

New Orleans Seafood Gumbo

This dish holds a special place in my heart — mostly because it was one of my dad’s favorites, and representative of his love for New Orleans — but also because until this weekend, I never thought I’d taste it again.

Spicy Chili Verde

It’s spicy, it’s delicious, and it’s from Mexico. Of course my dad loved it. This dish was one of his poker-night staples.  The recipe is a bit time-consuming, but it’s so worth it.

Paul’s Guacamole

At long last, the infamous guacamole recipe! I feel like I keep saying that each recipe is one of the first my dad ever taught me, but this is another early fave. I remember camping out by the guac bowl whenever Dad would make this for parties (alongside his famous from-scratch salsas and doctored-up cheese dip).

Now it’s become one of my go-to party/barbecue recipes as well. It’s creamy, spicy, citrusy, and best of all—easy. See for yourself!
