Planning a Super Bowl Party? Or have you volunteered to bring a dish to someone else’s?

Jambalaya is fun, filling and easy to make for a crowd.

Jambalaya was created when Spaniards living in the Latin Quarter of New Orleans couldn’t afford saffron, due to the high import costs.

So they created a New World version, which became jambalaya (jamón and jambon are the words for ham in Spanish and French, respectively; “alaya” came from “paella”).
