Spruced-up Zatarain's® Jambalaya Recipe
Start with a boxed jambalaya mix, add andouille sausage, onion, and a can of diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, and finish deliciously.
I have made jambalaya from scratch and there is no noticeable difference. To this recipe, I cooked chopped up celery as well as onions. I added shrimp the last five minutes so it had shrimp and sausage. You could easily add chicken as well.
Its just me an my boyfriend so i made one box of the jambalaya rice. Sauteed onion smoked sausage and one chicken breast and then added the rice and the Rotel an had black beans on the sides awesome meal!!
This recipe is a keeper. I did not use 48 oz. of andouille, I split the 48 ounces between chicken, ham and shrimp and andouille. Delighted. I browned the chicken in olive oil and butter, removed it and then added andouille and ham and onion in the remaining oil to saute. Added the cooked chicken. Then followed the recipe. Shrimp was added at the end. However, I had to cook it one hour for my desired consistencey. Low and Slow! Great. Rotel made it really special.
This was awesome have made it twice. I have used both andouille sausage with shrimp and chicken - I like the shrimp better. Both times I made this dish I have only used 1 box of rice. I let the dish simmer on the stove a bit longer to reduce the fluid but it was good for 4 people.
This is a hearty, filling meal - A variation on the Classic, using spicy tomatoes with green chiles, and ranch-style beans. There's only one pot to clean up!
