Creole Jambalaya New Orleans easy recipe

​Creole Jambalaya

Pick guitar, fill fruit jar an be gay-o
Son of a gun, we gonna have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya – performed here by Van Morrison & Linda Gail Lewis


Just the mention of Jambalaya has me in flashbacks of a skit we did back in my college days at MTSU.  Today, I’ve never lived closer to New Orleans and Mardi Gras fever is in the air! This sensational, flavorful Creole Jambalaya recipe will have your family and guests thinking you were up at the crack of dawn cooking this up.  Oh, how wrong they will be!  This recipe adapted from Taste of Home.
