    Oh Boy, is this one good! It's a simple, but very authentic Louisiana jambalaya recipe given to me by a friend who grew up in New Orleans! Nice and spicy!

      I halved the recipe and used the exact ingredients. It has good spice, so if you can't stand the heat you might want to back off the pepper. My husband loved it. I don't recall him ever saying "this is REALLY" good. He actually got up and put what was left in a tupperware container. That was definitely a first and we've been married 25 yrs. This is a keeper.

      We cut down the sausage to 12 oz, added 2 large chicken breasts (cut into 1 inch pieces) and about 12 shrimp (put these in the last 5 minutes of cooking)... it turned out great. DH said it could use more heat, even though I doubled the cayenne... next time I may add 2 serrano chilis, or find another way to increase the heat... overall, really tasty!

      I cut the recipe in half as I didn't want 10 servings. I have to admit I substituted the sausage. I used bulk breakfast sausage, like Jimmy Deans but different brand. I also altered the method. I browned the sausage then added the veges. Because I had the fat from the sausage, I reduced the butter to 1 Tbsp. I also used a whole can of tomatoes, in spite of cutting the recipe in half, as others had commented that more liquid was required and didn't want to save 1/2 the can of tomatoes. I actually had to add liquid to about double the recipe amount to get the rice done and soft. It was a great tasting recipe, (I would have preferred it to be spicier) but I got no compliments, no doubt due to the fact it took too long to get done. I'm not saving this to my "favorites" folder, but it's worth a try if you want a substitute for the boxed stuff.
