This Jambalaya is so good! This was my first time cooking this dish and I was very impressed by the flavours of it. It’s like Paella, a Spanish dish. I was right the first time I saw this recipe online that it was going to be delicious! Give this one a try, I highly recommend it! Feel free to add more ingredients if you wish or you can omit the hot sauce if you are not a chilli person. Enjoy!
