This was not our taste. I don't particularly care for jambalaya, but my husband loves it, so I made it for him. I have a different recipe that he says he likes better, and we won't be making this again. So sorry, with all the positive reviews I was hoping we would like it better.

Wow! This is one great jambalaya! We used the chorizo sausage, as I had never tried it before. Everyone went back for seconds and thirds! This makes quite a bit, but we were glad it did because one serving never would have been enough for us!! I will be passing this one on to others to enjoy.

Wow this is SO good! I used to live in N'awlins and this was a delicious firey feast. Not too hot, but just right thanks to the chorizo and Tony's (which I had to go to 4 stores to find!). I had to remove the casing from my chorizo, so it was more of a crumbled texture rather than coins, but I think I prefer it this way. I followed the recipe exactly except for omitting the 3rd tsp of salt - and honestly I think I could have omitted all of it - and I also added about a cup of chicken broth to make it a little saucier as we like it. I didn't mix in the rice either because I like to keep it less dry. Thanks for the amazing recipe, Linda! I will never have to use another thank to you :)
