I’m hosting a super bowl party this weekend and we’ve got a combination of West Coast and East Coast folks joining the festivities. In order to keep thing neutral I decided to go with a New Orleans theme, which has all the guests excited. Who doesn’t love a good jambalaya washed down with a hurricane? Check out these must have recipes for a fun filled super bowl party.

Jambalaya 1 of 7This classic dish is perfect for serving a crowd of meat loving football fans. This spicy recipe includes, chicken, sausage, and shrimp.
Shrimp Etouffe 2 of 7This recipe is less spicy than jambalaya and only calls for one meat, shrimp. So if you have any non sausage lovers over serve up a batch of this classic cajun dish.
