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.
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.
I'm a writer and editor by day, an amateur chef by night (and weekend!). When I'm not whipping up quick and delicious after-work meals, I'm exploring Chicago through its bars and restaurants.
