It may not have been the greatest pro football game ever, but Colts vs. Giants on Dec. 28, 1958 was the most important. The NFL championship riveted TV fans through four quarters - plus 8:15 of the first overtime in league history (final: Baltimore 23, New York 17).

My family loves this dish. It's great on weekends when everyone is watching college or pro football games and could also be made ahead and warmed up in a crockpot for tailgating if you had electricity. We also like it during the holidays, but you could make it most anytime. This is similar to one of Emeril's jambalaya recipes, but I like a little tomato in mine (red jambalaya) I also use brown rice and white meat only chicken.
