I'm not gonna' lie. The prospect of working with a legend is a pretty daunting one. Especially when they're so hot. As it turns out, Tabasco couldn't be easier to work with and it wasn't long before this tasty jambalaya recipe was rocking out The 60 Second Kitchen. Originally from the depths of Louisiana, I put my own citrussy spin on this classic to entertain your taste buds and guarantee you a bevvy of dinner time groupies.
