Tasso is a Cajun style meat product made from heavily-seasoned, thinly-sliced strips of smoked pork. While cooked tasso can be eaten as a standalone dish, tasso is usually added to other dishes as a flavoring agent. In addition to pork, some commercially-made tasso is available in varieties made from other meats, such as turkey.
