The meal turned out well. I should have left the Cajun ingredients out and jalapeños (it has some kick)

i used regular sweet sausage...but it was a 10 all around
Very flavorful and just the right spice!

loves it! although I couldn't really find the rightbsausages sinswitched itnout dor chorizo. cookes the rice with stock then left it all to finish in the slow cooker. definitely do it again
Was awesome- very spicy next time 6/2/18 I will use only 1 jalapeño.

Easy recipe. took longer to prep than actually cook. Have to be careful not to over cook the shrimp. Family loved it tho...
too spicy for my family, but not for my brother. next time i make this, i won't use too many spices.

I have never had Jambalaya, so I don't have anything to compare it to. It was delicious though. I added a small can of tomato sauce to the recipe and cooked the rice separately.
Raul C. 1 May
Great recipe. Thank you
It was absolutely delicious. We will make again for sure.

Changed up just a couple things. Used a jambalya rice mix in place if the plain rice to enhance the flavor. Also used a plain smoked sausage in place of the andouille as my wife and father in law dont like things too spicy.
Turned out great we like spicy but we decided next time cut cayenne amount in half.

Modified recipe a lil bit. Did not add rice in stock because didn’t want rice to be soggy. Turned out great though!
Leah Adam 26 Feb

"Best Cajun meal you ever cooked!" Followed recipe more carefully than I normally do. Bought fresh shrimp. Only thing I changed was I used diced cauliflower pre-cooked to al dente before I added in place of rice to lower carbs. Will do it again! Note that hat this makes much more than 4 servings which means nutrition info is overstated.
This was delicious, and all of my guests loved it. I'll definitelt make it again!
Denise J. 23 Dec 2017
Perfect. I will make this again; the flavors were authentic.
Ischa Bremer 28 Nov 2017
A bit salty, but very nice!
Lauren S. 8 Oct 2017
Delicious! No modifications.
Ann Z. C. 7 Sep 2017
Delicious I had to keep scraping bottom of dutch oven every 5 minutes, so rice did not burn.
Chris G. 4 Sep 2017
This was so good. My wife loves jambalaya and when she tried this she told me it was the best she's ever had for two reasons. The first was that it wasn't soupy the second was because it wasn't super spicy. I actually omitted the jalapeño and hot sauce since I wanted my 5 year olds to try it. I added hot sauce to my own bowl though. Thanks for the recipe I will make this again.

This recipe turned out really nice! Reminds me of when I lived in Louisiana. Plenty spicy but that's how I like it. I chose not to add the shrimp and probably could have added some more chicken.
Jessica C. 17 Mar 2017
OMG! This was amazing. I used hillshire farm cajun sausage and chicken. im not a fan of shrimp so i left that out. it was a bit spicy for myself and my husband so next time ill leave out the hot sauce. other than that this will be in my rotation at least 1 a month maybe more cause it uses 1 pot. i hate washing dishes👍🏾👍🏾
