Mama C's Jambalaya

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by graffeetee

Good spicy stuff! You can vary this by subbing 1 cup of chicken, turkey, sausage or shrimp for 1 cup of the ham. The better quality the ham you use, the better tasting the jambalaya. You can use any commercial creole seasoning mix, or use my creole seasoning recipe and make your own.

I needed to use up some ham so decided to make this recipe. I added some diced celery and green pepper with the onion. It was very easy, tasty and I plan on making it again. I also used Recipe #22089 as the seasoning.
