this was an exceptional recipe i am from new orleans and this is the best and closest to my garndfather's recipe.


This dish was very savory and tasteful, also very easy to make. I loved it. However, it is not for tender tongues. The green chilies with the tomatoes that it calls for really add a punch and in leftovers the heat factor is somehow intensified, maybe even overpowering. I would definitely make it again, more than likely however without the green chilies and perhaps substituting with shrimp. Though this recipe tastes great with the crawfish processing them was a little time consuming. Shrimp would work better if you were in a rush.


This was really good! I used butter instead of margarine, added half a can of tomato paste, one can of cream of mushroom, one can of cream of celery, and about two cups of chicken broth mixed with both to make it thinner. about a pound and a half of fresh crawfish left over from a Sunday boil with a little extra Tonys sprinkled on top and it was fabulous!
