100 American Foods Challenge: Tasso

Chicken fried chicken with a tasso gravy, mashed potatoes, and green beans

I’ve been plugging away at my list. I haven’t blogged about everything on it, but I’ve eaten a few more, either on vacation or just in doing further research, I’ve realized that I have eaten them – I just didn’t realize that’s what they were called. So if you look on my list now, I’m almost halfway -47 out of 50 foods, with tasso being the 47th addition.

So, last night I set out to try tasso. Actually, I have been attempting to try this for a month and it always fell through. But last night, Nick and I went out to Maxie’s. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Maxie’s since living in Milwaukee and I have to say, it did not disappoint. The service was excellent and friendly and the food was so delicious. Today is actually our 6th wedding anniversary, so we went out last night in celebration of that. We went to Maxie’s and then we went to the mall and I got new Harry Potter slippers and then we saw Passengers. It was really good, I liked it, but admittedly, that genre is 100 percent in my wheelhouse for what I like to watch and read. Plus, it has Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. It was the perfect date night and it was worth waiting for. If we had gone earlier in the month, we wouldn’t have been able to see Passengers as it was just released.

So, to cover tasso, I had chicken fried chicken with tasso gravy, mashed potatoes, and green beans. It was soooooo good. It was spicy, but just the right amount. Not where it was so spicy I couldn’t eat it, but just enough to give it flavor, but you could still taste all the other flavors as well. I’d definitely eat it again if I had the chance to.

Have you ever tried tasso? Do you like it? Would you try it?
