Hot Chicken Casserole
A warm, flavor-filled dish that can be prepared far in advance. A good pick for large groups, or small dish that's not too heavy of a dinner. It can also be varied in several ways. This dish does not need to be cooked and can be served cold.
My stepmother is Filipino. I would watch her make these on special occasions. She never measured what she did, but I think I've got the knack of it. This is one of the best Filipino foods next to pancit - and unfortunately, I don't know how to make that!! You can find lumpia wrappers in Asian food stores wherever they keep their frozen food, and also (if you're lucky) in very large supermarkets.
Traditional Filipino Lumpia
Crispy fried spring rolls filled with pork and veggies are the perfect app!
Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo
This authentic Creole Gumbo from New Orleans starts out with a slow cooked roux.Traditional gumbo file powder is used to flavor shrimp, crabmeat, and andouille sausage.
Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
A quick, easy, comforting soup made with instant rice and shredded chicken.
A simple soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect salty-sweet complement to rich salmon fillets.
