If you want you can always add meat for a heartier version but this recipe is all about the spices and vegetarian since the majority of their menu is meat.
This recipe comes from the amusing folks in New Orleans at the Ugly Dog Saloon in the Warehouse District, a few blocks from the Convention Center (401 Andrew Higgins Blvd, New Orleans, Louisiana). Be sure to pay them a visit when you visit the Crescent City!
