“This is one of my favorite dishes because it is so good and very easy. The flavor of the Tasso makes this dish exceptional. If you have dinner guests they will be very impressed. If I'm making this dish and I know my dinner guests aren't big fans of thyme and basil I'll substitute Emeril's Essence for all of the dry seasonings. I usually will add 2 Tbsp of Emeril's Essence and adjust accordingly.”
