Since 1889, Zatarain's has been the authority on the fun and flavor of New Orleans. Interestingly, Zatarain's is as much a tradition at backyard barbeques as it is at formal dinners. It's amazing to think that, from such humble beginnings, the company has grown to make over 200 food products from Rice Dinner Mixes, Pasta Dinner Mixes, Breadings, Seasonings and Spices to Seafood Boils, Stuffing Mixes and other products based on authentic New Orleans–style foods and seafood preparation.

The wonderful people over at Zatarain's sent us the following products to sample! We are huge fans of Zatarain's products & loyal customers because we CAN NOT find anything close to the products offered!

Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice
Red Beans & Rice is a traditional Monday dinner in New Orleans and has wide appeal today. This mix has precooked beans so total preparation time is under 30 minutes. Great with sausage or pork chops as a side dish or entree, or straight as packaged for a meatless meal.

I love this dish with a spicy chicken personally! This is an awesome food if you are trying to lose weight plus it's really filling! I persoanlly do not like red beans so I pick mine out like a little kid! Since the kids will not eat this dish we like the spicy version but the regular red beans & rice is just as tasty but without the heat! So if you want a little taste of that New Orleans style home cooking, then Zatarain's red beans and rice is a great dish.

Yellow Rice
This easy-to-prepare mix has just the right blend of ingredients for great tasting New Orleans Style food and comes from Zatarain's, since 1889 the leader in authentic New Orleans cooking.

Perfect side dish to complement any meal! Plus it's very easy to make but make sure you stir because it likes to stick to the bottom of the pan! This rice would be great to try with some lightly seasoned chicken!
Creole Mustard
Zatarain's Creole Mustard is one of the original products introduced by Emile Zatarain in the late 1800s. It is a coarse, stone ground mustard with a uniquely vibrant flavor that has earned it a place on many New Orleans table and in many a New Orleans po-boy sandwich.

We tried this delicious mustard with some ham lunch meat, and it was delicious. This mustard has a very distinct, unique taste that is sure to please anyone who loves mustard but also wants a hint of New Orleans in their mustard. The flavor was great and would definitely recommend this for any lunch meat sandwich or anything else you like with your mustard!

Big & Zesty Blackened Creole Seasoning
ZATARAIN'S® Big & Zesty Creole Seasonings offer the flavor and soul of New Orleans in three different varieties: Original, Blackened, and Garlic & Herb.

Creole Seasoning

Zatarain's Creole Seasoning adds a deliciously different taste to everything you shake it on -- use in place of salt and pepper on meats, seafood, salads and vegetables; perfect for soups, stews and omelets.

This seasoning will definitely give your food some kick. We tried this on steak and chicken and both of them mixed very well with the seasoning. We cooked them on the grill and marinated the steaks and chicken with this seasoning and it came out perfect. The taste was fantastic and is not your usual spices you get at the store!

One lucky person will win a prize package from Zatarain's!
