Being from Louisiana everyone assumes you cook cajun food automatically.

Folks in north and central Louisiana, however, just cook "regular" food. But occasionally we get a hankering to cook some cajun or creole food.

There are several different methods of cooking creole food. This particular recipe is just one way.

If you're not use to cooking or eating cayenne red pepper, you might want to start out with a 1/2 teaspoon and graduate up to the full amount of 2 teaspoons. Cayenne pepper is HOT, HOT, HOT!
