Yuuuuummy! By far the best jambalaya I have ever(?) had! Has a very nice kick to it! My only changes were to use 15 oz. can tomato sauce rather than the tomatoes (chunky tomatoes not popular at our house), also lowfat ham and Healthy Choice smoked sausage. Wonderful!
- 1⁄2 lb fully cooked smoked sausage, halved and sliced
- 2 cups fully cooked ham, cubed
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 celery ribs, chopped
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 medium green pepper, chopped
- 5 green onions, thinly sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
