    TinyBubbles's Note:

    Adapted from Chicago's famed House of Blues version of Jambalaya, this one takes less time, but doesn't skimp on BIG BAYOU flavor! It is one dish I am repeatedly asked to make. The great thing is you can throw in any number of meats and seafood that you have on hand, and leave one out if you want--any combination still tastes delicious! Have plenty of ice-cold beer on hand, you're gonna need it!
