    Boudin

    Brats aren't bad, but they can't compare to boudin. Traditional, seafood, fried boudin balls, there's no end to the kinds of boudin you'll find at a Cajun Super Bowl party.

    Seafood Dip

    Good luck finding a Super Bowl party in Acadiana without a seafood dip of some sort. Crawfish, shrimp, crab, or maybe a little bit of all three. Here's a great recipe for a shrimp and cream cheese dip from Chef Pat Mould for your own party if you need one.

    Gumbo

    We got a nice little cold snap a few days ago, perfect for cooking a gumbo. Here's a great chicken and sausage gumbo recipe from Justin Wilson.
