(NAPSI)—Mardi Gras is back—Fat Tuesday is March 1—and Jambalaya is an excellent savory recipe to enjoy the return of this ultimate celebration. You can try your hand at the classic New Orleans dish, using the “trinity” (onions, bell pepper and celery), tomatoes, chicken and Zatarain’s Smoked Sausage, available at Walmart and Kroger. Crunched for time? Use the quick and easy Zatarain’s Jambalaya mix instead.

“Many people outside of New Orleans don’t realize that Mardi Gras is really a family holiday,” said Claude Davis, Principal Scientist for Zatarain’s and a native of New Orleans’s Tremé neighborhood. “This time of year is as much about the food as it is about anything else and Zatarain’s Smoked Sausage is the perfect ingredient to bring home the flavor of New Orleans, no matter where you live.”
