50 flavor-filled Southern recipes

Southern food is as diverse as its chefs and locations of origin. From Louisiana gumbo to Kentucky burgoo, Southern cuisine puts fried chicken, barbecue, pork chops, catfish, crawfish, and collard greens front and center. The food’s biggest influences come from African, indigenous, English, French, Irish, and Scottish food—and some of the best Southern recipes represent hybridized cooking styles made possible over hundreds of years of cultural blending.

Stacker compiled a list of Southern recipes from Allrecipes. Packed with variety and filled with rich flavor and varied flavors, keep reading for Southern classics, including a number of delicious soul food dishes you’ll return to again and again
