Eric’s Jambalaya

eric's jambalayaJambalaya can be made many ways. I have blogged about a few different jambalaya recipes – Louisiana Jambalaya and Jambalaya Pasta with Penne, Chicken, Shrimp & Andouille.  All recipes must have the trinity of celery, peppers, and onions; the meat is usually chicken and sausage such as andouille or smoked sausage.  Shrimp is sometimes used.

  1. Chicken Tinga – having served this to lots of Gina’s friends, I am now receiving requests from their Mother’s for the recipe, which I am supplying with a couple of chipotles (and a word of caution regards heat ) as they are hard to track down in Aus.
