Yummy Jambalaya!


IMG_2283

I had a request to make this dish from  a viewer of mine on Twitch.tv! I’ve had this dish many times before but never prepared it myself. I found a recipe online and decided to tweek and add a few of my own ingredients and this dish  came out delicious and quite pleasing to my guests that I had over for dinner. Feel free to adjust the heat in this dish to suit personal taste!

This recipe makes 4 servings

The ingredients you’ll need:
