Ground Beef Jambalaya is my recipe f the day. I  wanted to do a different take on Jambalaya that leaned in the direction of Dirty rice  (minus  chicken livers). And this is it.

Minced ground beef is one of my go-to choices for comfort food, so it  is a natural for me. Ground  beef  pairs  very well with beef  as well.

You can choose to serve this as your main course, or perhaps you’d like to spoon  it up as a side dish. Either way, it captures the spirit of New Orleans and makes a perfect choice for your Mardis Gras or Carnival  menu.
