Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it generously. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook, uncovered, until crisp-tender, or the desired degree of doneness. Scoop the vegetable from the water and immediately put them in the ice water, to stop the cooking and set their color. Cool and drain, and use as desired.
In a medium-size pan, heat the olive oil. Add the vegetables to the pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Season the vegetables with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning. Cook the vegetables for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Lightly coat the vegetable with Tamari Sauce. Cook for a minute more. Transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl and serve immediately.
Whisk in flour and cook for two more minutes. Gradually whisk in the milk until the mixture starts to thicken, about 10 minutes. Once thickened, stir in heavy cream, remaining tablespoon of Slap Ya Mama Original Cajun Seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.
Take the skillet off the heat and mix in cheddar and pepper jack cheeses. Fold in the cooked pasta. Scoop mac n’ cheese into a bowl and enjoy!
Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees Farenheight. Soak peeled thinly sliced potatoes in cold water for at least an hour to remove some starch then pat dry with a towel. Season with salt, pepper, and Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning then toss with vegetable oil. Transfer to a greased air fryer basket and cook for 20 minutes until crispy, flipping halfway through.
While the fries are cooking, make the onion cheese sauce. Heat a saucepan over medium heat and bring heavy cream to a simmer. Once simmering, turn the heat down to medium-low and stir in Little Jasmine Onion Sauce and cubed cheeses. Cook until melted, stirring every few minutes until everything is well combined. If the sauce becomes too thick, thin it out with more heavy cream as necessary.
Next, cook the steak and peppers. Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the thinly sliced ribeye steak. Season with salt and pepper and cook until no longer pink. Transfer to a plate when done.
To the same skillet, turn the heat down to medium and add thinly sliced red onion and green pepper. Cook until caramelized, about 7-10 minutes. Once caramelized, add the cooked steak back to the skillet and cook for another minute then take off the heat and set aside.
To assemble, add french fries to a large platter. Top with an even layer of caramelized steak, onions, and peppers then drizzle the warm onion cheese sauce on top. Enjoy!
Peel potatoes, and cut into bite-size pieces. Cover bottom of a large stockpot with oil, and heat over high heat. Add potatoes, and stir until coated with oil. Season with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning, to taste and begin to brown potatoes, stirring occasionally.
Continue to stir while adding onion, bell pepper, and garlic(if desired). Fill pot with water until it reaches top of the potatoes. Bring to a full boil, and stir occasionally from top of pot to bottom.
When potatoes begin to break down, reduce heat to a slow boil, and stir frequently to prevent sticking. Continue with a slow boil until potatoes have a thick, chunky consistency. Once this consistency is reached remove from heat and let stand while stirring occasionally for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Garnish with jalapeño and additional Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning.

Oddly many folks who hate raw onions in recipes, seem to love onion rings for some reason; in my own son’s words, ” I love me some onion rings… but if you attempt to put an onion on my burger, I’ll kick your butt.”
The actual invention of our deliciously crispy onion rings is actually unknown…
John Mollard’s 1802 cookbook “The Art of Cookery Made Easy and Refined” includes a recipe called “Fried Onions with Parmesan Cheese.” The recipe suggests cutting onions into 1/2″ rings, dipping them into a batter made of flour, cream, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese, and then deep-frying them in “boiling” lard. It further suggests serving them with a sauce made of melted butter and mustard.
In 1910, a recipe for French Fried Onions appeared in the Middletown, New York Daily Times on 13 January 1910. It does not claim to be the originator of the recipe.
Another claimant to the invention of the onion ring is the Kirby’s Pig Stand restaurant chain, founded in Oak Cliff, Texas, in the early 1920s.
In 1933, a recipe for deep-fried onion rings that were dipped in milk then dredged in flour appeared in The New York Times, the advertisement was for the company Crisco.
The restaurant A&W is credited with popularizing the onion rings in fast food restaurants, introducing it to its menu in the 1960s.
