Jambalaya is one of my favorite Louisiana dishes. Similar to the Spanish Paella, but with more Cajun and Creole flair. If you're wondering what to serve with Jambalaya you came to the right place.
Often served at Mardi Gras parades and festivals throughout the state of Louisiana, Jambalaya is a traditional southern dish as well as a popular dish.
There is a seafood jambalaya, and a chicken and sausage jambalaya (usually andouille sausage) - those are your two most common types. Then, throw in some more confusion - Creole style (with tomatoes) or a Cajun Jambalaya (without tomatoes).
