One of the wonderful things about jambalaya is the infinite variety. I have a recipe for an easy version made in the Instant Pot on my blog which includes tomatoes. And a very dear friend from New Orleans shared her Cajun version with me years ago. She recently passed away and I'm going to finally share her recipe as a tribute to her (with her husband's blessing). It's completely different from my IP jambalaya but both are delicious. Yours looks really tasty, too! Have a beautiful week!
