A Global Culinary Adventure!
Picture above shows Chicken and Andouille Sausage Jambalaya , a quick and delicious Creole dish popular in New Orleans, Louisiana.
New Orleans is on my wishlist of places to visit (hint, hint to my husband ), one for the beautiful scenery and old historical buildings, and two (and, most importantly) for the delicious food that I’ve heard so much rave about.
I researched long and hard to find out what ingredients and spices goes best in a good Jambalaya, so this is my rendition on the ever so famous recipe of the south. I hope you enjoy! As always, thanks for reading!
