Tasty New Orleans Jambalaya

Jambalaya is both a culinary staple and a storied dish in New Orleans. The dish has been a part of New Orleans cuisine since Colonial Spanish settlers tried reconstructing their native paella from locally-sourced ingredients. Today, the dish is comprised of a mix of chicken, seafood, sausage–or all three!–plus peppers, onions, other vegetables, spices, and rice combined in a variety of ways.
