Having a jambalaya recipe in your back pocket is a good idea, especially when it starts getting cold outside! The dish is a little spicy and has that stick-to-your-ribs delicious experience.
I did not use okra in my jambalaya, honestly because I forgot it! You can add 1 cup of okra, sliced thinly, to your jambalaya just before you add the rice. But it works well without it!
