I wanted to try and make some jambalaya since we are now living in an area that has really good jambalaya and gumbo and the such. I couldn't find a recipe that I really like so I pulled some aspects from a bunch of recipe and threw them all together to produce my version of jambalaya. Someone who makes real jambalaya will probably think that it is a sin to call this jambalaya but I think it turned out pretty well (aka both Nate and I liked it)


  • 1 package Low fat Kielbasa cut into 1/2 slices
  • 1/2 lb shrimp
  • 1 Green bell pepper diced
  • 1 Yellow onion diced
  • 1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasonings
  • 3 tsp hot sauce
  • 2 cups Rice
Cook your rice in the chicken broth. I put my rice and chicken broth in my rice cooker so I didn't have to worry about it. In a saute pan over medium high heat, start cooking the kielbasa. Cook for about 1 minute and add the onions and green peppers. Cook for 5 minutes and add the Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, tomatoes and shrimp. Keep stirring until the onions and green pepper are tender. Add the rice and mix together. Serve warm. Enjoy!
