    Tasty and so easy! I added red beans because I just love beans and that added more texture.

    This recipe is very easy to follow and I followed it. The results were delicious and my husband enjoyed seconds which he never does when I cook. The little ones approve it's hot but not too hot. It makes a very large portion and we will have left overs for a few days but I think everyone is A-ok with that. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

    Great every time!!! I used small shrimp so it would disperse more and added a little more rice then listed. Otherwise delicious!

    It was tricky getting the rice to cook through the first time I made this. The second time I added the rice and boiled for a couple mins before adding the meats in and that was perfect. Delicious leftovers for days!

    I made this for a family of 6 and we all agreed it was amazing. I didn’t use any leads or anything like that but it was and still is good.

    Great! Family loved it. I see less Cajun seasonings to make a milder version - will definitely make it again!

    The dish was very tasteful, however I recommend using 2 cups of chicken broth instead of 3. Will definitely cook again.

    Good, but not great for jambalaya- felt like it was missing some flavor.

    Great flavor, but water portions are off. 3 cups of broth left the rice extremely mushy. I’d use maybe 2 cups to account for the tomatoes that are full of water.

    Delicious!!! I pretty much followed the recipe to a T. I added the chicken, shrimp, and Johnsonville Chorizo Sausage. It was perfectly seasoned with a little kick. I’m sure we’ll make it again! My husband is well travelled and thought I did a” bang up job “!

    It came out delicious! Made the rice on the side so that we could use fresh rice when we eat the leftovers it was a hit with the family!

    Mediocre dish. Followed exact recipe, except I cooked the rice separately. Fine for the night, but will not make again.

    It came out delicious! I grilled some shrimp and served it on top. I used Cajun style andouille sausage which added a little more kick. I’ll definitely be making this again.

    I made it is it supposed to be a bland dish? How would you recommend to make it a little more flavourful?

    It was great. I added one jalapeño to give a little hot spice. I would definitely make it again.

    Hands down the best recipe! I will be making this whenever I here New Orleans calling my name I have attached a picture of it while it was cooking. I didn’t have time to take a picture when it was done. My family devoured it!!
