Creole Jambalaya

"I've been to New Orleans a couple of times and absolutely loved jambalaya. Here is a version from the Napoleon House in the French Quarter. If you cannot find Anouille sausage, just subsitute another spicy sausage."

Ready In:




  • Melt the butter and sauté the sausage and chicken just a little bit.
  • Add the onions and green pepper and sauté a little longer, until fragrant.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil, then cover and cook on low until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. This should take about 30 minutes.

  1. It was my first time making Jambalaya and my husband requested it for Father's Day. The portions are true, we made it bigger thinking we would need more for 6 people and we absolutely didn't need to. We did however need to triple the beef broth as the rice just soaked it right up. I didn't increase the cayenne amount even though there was more of everything else and it was just right for us. I can't tolerate too much spice myself. My husband wants to make this for my boy's birthday party now! I don't know how I could make that much at once...we will see :-)
  2. This was FANTASTIC. I think when you use all the fresh vegetables it makes it 10 times better than any "boxed creole meal" you can get. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed this. Well,I did. My fiance inhaled his. I could even taste all the certain spices that melded so well. Thanks for sharing this recipe!Made for ZWT5 for the GROOVY GASTROGNOMES.


I joined Recipezaar to learn new recipes that are home cooked. I grew up having ready-meals like Encor and Stouffers and needed recipes that don't simply require opening a box and plopping in the oven! I enjoy cooking when I have the time to try new dishes. I make every recipe as written if I'm reviewing it to give a true review. If I make alterations that aren't in the directions, I don't feel it's a true reflection of the recipe; it's another recipe to me. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" width=75%> (Zaar World Tour 4) <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> (Australia/New Zealand Swap #15)
