In a recent interview, Cyril Neville of the famous Neville Brothers spoke of his relocation to Texas from his beloved New Orleans. He called his new music “chumbo”, an amalgamation of Texas and Louisiana influences (chili and gumbo). I thought this would be a great dish to actually make for tailgating. The rich flavor of lime and pepper chicken reflects the Cuban influence in South Florida, and the gumbo base of okra and garlic is a nod to New Orleans. Chile and jalapenos should appeal to lovers of all things Texas. This is not a purists dish, but it’s a helluva lot of fun to make-and eat!
