HOMEMADE JAMBALAYA

Homemade Jambalaya

So crazy good. And also, very easy to customize especially when it comes to heat. I prefer jambalaya heavily seasoned and spicy, but if you like a milder version, just go easy on the Cajun seasoning and only use one seeded jalapeno. If want to “kick it up a notch”, add lots of seasoning, pop in two jalapenos (with seeds), and maybe even add some hot sauce in at the end.
