Shrimp & Andouille Sausage Jambalaya

Total Time
Prep 20 mins

One of my best friends, Sharon, gave me this recipe. It is one of the best jambalaya recipes I have tried, and I make it quite often. If the andouille sausage is too spicy for you, you can always substitute 2 cups of cubed cooked ham.

What a great recipe!! The family really enjoyed it, and it was very easy to make. If you like more "heat", there is no difficulty to add to this. I made it with no changes to the recipe, and it was so tasty! I served it with sourdough wheat bread, and Hershey's Special Dark Picnic Cake for dessert. Thanks, Jackie, this is a keeper!

Perfect, easy, and attractive! The broth and seasonings are wonderful! Just the right amount of heat and we appreciate that it does not have crushed red pepper in it. I did sub ham for the sausage, omitted the green pepper, and used cooked shrimp b/c they had a great sale on it. We put the cooked shrimp in for 3 minutes. Thanks JackieOhNo! for posting a recipe I will definitely be making again. Made for PRMR game.

Delicious!! We loved this quick and easy jambalaya. The seasonings were perfect, I wouldn't change a thing. I used 12 oz. of Andouille sausage because that was the size package I had on hand and we love the stuff. My husband kept commenting on how good it tasted, so I knew it was a winner. Thank you for sharing this fabulous is definitely a keeper!!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 - Cajun/ Creole for The Apron String Travelers.
