I garountee that this is one of my favorites on the planet, GB! And this recipe of yours is a quick, simple way of making it. Sure looks good, too!

One of these days when you're feeling adventurous, combine equal amounts of olive oil and flour in a heavy pot, stirring constantly until it is the color of a new copper penny, then dump in your celery, onions and pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add your liquids and seasonings to taste, then throw in the chicken and andouille to cook on low for 4-8 hours. Then scoop that over separately cooked rice with a tad of file powder sprinkled on top of the rice.

A few dashes of tabasco, a cold brew and Joe LeBlon playing in the background!

Another way to cook jambalaya is our family favorite. Proceed with the recipe but instead of cooking on the stove top, put all the ingredients into an eight quart stock pot and place in a 350 degree oven for about 90 minutes. Takes a bit of time but turns out beautifully! :)
