Tasty Blend of Culture in One

Jambalaya is thought to have originally come from the Caribbean. It is thought to be a blend of Spanish cuisine mixed with native Caribbean cooking. This dish is generally made from meats, vegetables, stock, and rice. There are primarily two ways to make jambalaya. One way is the Creole way, which is a red jambalaya, thought to have influence from both Spanish and French cooking. It incorporates meat (usually chicken and andouille sausage), with onions, peppers, and celery (referred to as the Trinity), tomatoes, vegetables, seafood, rice and stock. The other way is Cajun jambalaya which does not include tomatoes. (The closer one gets to New Orleans, supposedly the less tomatoes are used in cooking.)

This recipe is more of Creole in style. It includes all the key components of a tomato based jambalaya.
