This was very nice indeed. Easy to make and nice and filling. Made for ZWT 9 for the Tasty Testers.

Easy to make and tasty. I followed the recipe exactly. Like the previous reviewer, we also thought it was a little bland, so added hot sauce to it at the table. We prefer jambalaya with a more smoky taste and a combination of meats, but this was good and we definitely enjoyed it. I would make it again, using the same technique, but adding in a variety of meats and other ingredients. Made for Pink Panthers on the Prowl for ZWT9.

Thanks, we had a really nice dinner tonight! Everyone liked it. I used long grain brown rice, so had to add about 1 1/2 cups more broth, and of course it took longer but that's to be expected. I had to sub tinned tomatoes as I forgot to buy tomato juice....I liked having the pieces of tomato in there. Certainly a healthy meal! The flavour I found a little on the bland side (aside from heat), so as I had just made "Cajun Seasoning" I added about a tsp in. Very nice thanks Nif! Made for ZWT5 Cooks w/Dirty Faces Team.
