Easy as 1, 2, 3... well almost.

Jambalaya may have been created in Louisiana and may have its origins in Spanish paella, even if there is a dish also called jambalaia in Provencesouthern France, that is also a mash-up of rice, chicken and saffron and that has been identified by Frederic Mistral in his Provençal dictionary, in both figurative and culinary meaning. Jambalaya is traditionally made in three parts, with meat and vegetables, and is completed by adding stock and rice.

First ~ grab the largest pot you own.  Saute sausage, chicken breast and shrimp if you have it. (I didn't) I used the meats natural juices to saute, no oil.
 Add chopped yellow onion, green onion, bell pepper, red pepper.  (I didn't have red pepper either)
Sprinkle to taste with ground red pepper, black pepper, white pepper, garlic salt, creole seasoning.  (I used Tony Chacherie's) Simmer
 Three ~ add large can of diced stewed tomatoes and rice.  (I used two cups of rice and cooked before I added)
 Stir, simmer and serve with french bread.

 Then go snuggle a one month old! Can you believe MissAllyAnn is one month??

For the Jambalaya, I used...
three chicken breasts
one pound of pork sausage
1 yellow onion
1 bunch of green onions
2 green bell peppers
2 cups rice cooked
1 large can diced tomatoes
red pepper
black pepper
white pepper
garllic salt
creole seasoning
if that is not hot/spicey enough for you - add one can of rotel tomatoes


  1. Sure sounds easy enough and that is one serious skillet! I usually mix up Emeril's seasoning only because I have everything on hand, always been curious how different that is compared to Tony's? Happy Easter Week Lori-enjoy:@)

    1. Love my iron pot. Really huge. Do you have any seasoning pot suggestions? Hubby cleaned it a bit too good. He scraped when he wasn't supposed to.

  2. Well, the recipe sounds delicious but I could just eat that sweet baby up. She is DARLING!!!! xo Diana

  3. Not the Gulf Coast /Cajun version, but wow - it looks delicious! I love to see the variety and tweaks people have with recipes. And with a baby that cute nearby, how could you stand to be away at the stove for even a minute? She's a doll!

  4. Oh! That baby is so adorable and sweet, you want to bite her!
    I love this recipe and I just pinned it. Thanks for sharing.
    Happy Easter ahead.

  5. Baby love...she's darling! Thank you for that great recipe, it's one to try soon!
    Happy Easter~
