Between gumbo, jambalaya, boudin, and po' boys it's hard to choose just one Louisiana food innovation, but Thrillist.com thinks they have it down.

Hot sauce, duh! The website validates their choice by saying "the Louisiana tradition of mixing tabasco or cayenne chili peppers with vinegar and salt and putting it on pretty much anything is a national treasure...". That's right, a national freaking treasure!

We're the home of Avery Island for crying out loud! We're the flipping home of Tabasco! Way to be awesome Thrillist.com, and thanks for recognizing.
