This was excellent. Unfortunately I did not have tomatoes on hand so I had to leave them out this time around but It was still good and I didn't miss them. Instead of purchacing all the other vegetables called for seperately, I found a frozen Chinese stir fry that had all the required veggies (except the tomatoes) including the carrots and celery which saved me time and money :) Instead of plain black pepper I used garlic pepper which I thought enhanced this recipe too. As per the substitute suggestions in the recipe I made it with chicken. This is a real keeper and I will make it again.
Good recipe EXCEPT I find Zatarain products too HOT and SPICY! Hot sauce can always be served at the table and added individually. I would do my own thing for Jambalaya. There are many wonderful recipes for it on the Internet.
