To wrap up 2013 I whipped up a batch of Jambalaya packed with flavor and spice. By combining ingredients from a few different recipes I put my own spin on this traditional creole dish. It was the perfect dish to end the year on and of course paired perfectly with some bubbly.
I find that some of my best dishes are unplanned. When the fridge is full of food that needs to be eaten quickly I get creative and make up the meal as a I go. So this makes its hard to write down a recipe, but it also a fun experiment that I hope others can learn to appreciate in their kitchen.
Using ingredients I had in the pantry I created my own version of red beans and rice with a spicy Mexican kick. As always, use what you have and adapt to your taste but below are the ingredients I used!
