Super quick Jambalaya- If you are wanting to make a yummy quick Jambalaya buy a package of Zatarain's New Orleans Jambalaya Mix.
You can't go wrong with this kit. Follow directions on the box. I saute up 1 chopped onion, 6 garlic cloves and 6 stalks of celery, 1 green pepper and then follow the next steps. I add in Andouille sausage (Hillshire farms has a brand that works fine if you can't find it local) and skinless smoked sausage. Sometimes I'll add chicken or shrimp. When the rice is just about finished I add in a large can of Ro-Tel tomatoes. This make a great Jambalaya. Now if you want to cut down on the salt and processed box mix you can make your own.
