Any Jambalaya fans here?

Just wondering. I haven't noticed any recipes posted here (maybe they're under rice?). I used to run a restaurant where I did a Cajun buffet every Tues for a month & a half, ending on Fat Tuesday. One of my most popular dishes was Jambalaya.

Okay, one of my many most popular dishes! 8)


If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

You could do a search of the site. May be in Pasta, rice or Fish seafood areas.

Jambalaya, ettoufe' and gumbo are staples here, along with Mexican, southern, south-western and Native American dishes!!! My family likes it when I mix the rice into the gumbo. I never make less then 4 gallons worth at a time, I freeze it for the kids to take with them when they come to visit. Hubby being a truck driver, likes to take it with him on the road. Problem is--I need to send more with him as the other drivers all come running when they find out he has some of my gumbo with him!!

Jambalaya is one of my faves as well! I know there's at least one jambalaya thread around here somewhere.

Try this one. It's one of my favorites.


Seasoning Mix:

2 Bay Leaves
2 tsp Cayenne
1.5 tsp Salt
1.5 tsp White Pepper
1 tsp Dry Thyme
.5 tsp Black Pepper
.25 tsp Rubbed Sage

For the Recipe:

2 Tb Unsalted Butter
.5 Lb Chopped Tasso
.75 Lb Chicken, cut into bite-size pieces
1 C Onions, chopped, in all
1 C Celery, chopped, in all
1 C Green Bell Peppers, chopped, in all
1 Tb Garlic, minced
.5 C Tomato Sauce
1 C Tomatoes, peeled & chopped
2.5 C Chicken Stock
1.5 C Rice, converted

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.

Melt the butter in a 3.5-quart saucepan over high heat. Add the tasso and cook, stirring frequently, until the meat starts to brown, about 3 minutes.

Add the chicken and continue cooking, stirring frequently and scraping the pan bottom well, until the chicken is browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Stir in the seasonings, half of the onions, celery, and bell peppers, and all the garlic.

Continue to cook the mixture, stirring almost constantly and scraping the pan bottom as needed, until the vegetables start to get tender, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Stir in the tomato sauce and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.

Stir in the remaining onions, celery, and bell peppers and the tomatoes.

Remove from the heat, stir in the stock and rice. Transfer the mixture to an ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan and bake, uncovered, until the rice is tender, about 60-75 minutes.

Remove from the oven, stir, and discard the bay leaves. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Serve with Creole Sauce.

1 C Tomato Sauce, canned
1 tsp Sugar
.5 tsp Tabasco Sauce

Seasoning Mix:

For the Recipe:

Melt the butter in a 12” skillet over medium heat.

Stir in the tomatoes, onions, celery, bell peppers, garlic and the seasoning mix. Stir thoroughly and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onions are transparent, about 5 minutes.

Remove bay leaves before serving.
