Jambalaya recipe

This amazing Jambalaya recipe I found at http://www.myrecipes.com/and I love it. Do you know what is Jambalaya ?

Jambalaya originated in the Caribbean Islands. The Spanish culture mixed with the native foods created what is known as Jambalaya. Jambalaya is traditionally made in three parts, with meat and vegetables, and is completed by adding stock and rice. It is also a close cousin to the saffron colored paella found in Spanish cuisine.
