NO TOMATOES? MAKE JAMBALAYA JOLLOF RICE!

Initially I was making Jollof but added a bunch of other ingredients and ended up with a spoon-licking jambalaya rice. So can we call it Jambalaya Jollof? T's not 100% Jambalaya and it's not 100% Jollof. LOL. Name this dish! Back to how delicious this was...Bobo said "don't serve plenty for me oh"(fitfam tinz)...as a good wife I said "Ok" and gave him a small portion. This guy went back two times to that pot! I no blame am, na the rice wey sweet I blame. Even Tito balance well to wack the rice. So what are the ingredients?

I want this framed and hung on my kitchen wall. She even has one of Fela, Jollof and Zobo!

On my last trip to Abuja I had a few minutes to kill so I took off to the Arts and Crafts Village, it was just a few minutes drive from the hotel we were staying.
