This spicy jambalaya flatbread is an easy and tasty dish. Spicy cajun flavors with succulent shrimp and andouille sausage make the perfect flatbread toppings.
Only a few days until Fat Tuesday so we are celebrating Easy Mardi Gras Recipes with the Sunday Supper family today! I’ve only been to New Orleans once with my hubby and we had a great time! It was only for a few days but we got to sample lots of good food and drink. Back then it was a little more emphasis on the drink than the food but it was great fun. So today in honor of Mardi Gras I made for you a quick and easy, spicy jambalaya flatbread. It’s spicy and rich and just delicious!
I thought about trying to make a hurricane cocktail too but changed my mind when I saw what was in one. I wanted to surprise my hubby as that was our drink of choice that weekend but I don’t know if I could handle one now. Here’s a traditional recipe that I found if you are interested and looks to be what I had back then. It was one of those drinks that made you think you were only drinking a delicious fruit punch. You have to hope you realize how strong they are before you order another because they taste great. As I recall I didn’t figure it out that quickly. 🙂
To make this simple flatbread I used a lot of precooked items like cooked shrimp, cooked chicken, flatbreads and marinara sauce. The other ingredients were andouille sausage, bell peppers, jalapeños and spices. The precooked ingredients really speed up the process. I started by mixing some cajun seasoning and garlic with the marinara sauce and spread it over the flatbreads. Next I sauteed the andouille sausage a bit with the shrimp, chicken and more cajun spice. Placed that on top of the marinara, sprinkled with cheese and topped with peppers and jalapeños. That’s it.
