Jambalaya with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage

New Orleans cuisine has a clear French influence, but the city was also ruled by Spain for a time, and this dish is likely a descendent of Spanish paella. Rice is cooked with tomatoes, sausage, and shrimp to create a hearty, filling dish that's simple to prepare. You can use crawfish, chicken, or pork in place of the shrimp.
