"Quite delicious!!! I cooked the rice separately and used 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can tomato sauce, and used large fresh shrimp. Some extra seasonings, garlic powder and a little sugar to cut bittern..." See moreess of tomatoes (maybe 1/2 tsp). Finally I added in about a cup of frozen okra 5 min before it was done. Served over buttered white rice w/ crusty french bread. My hunny could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!"
"Bubba, I love you. This recipe was AWESOME! My husband kept nudging me and telling me how good it was. I added more celery, onion, and bell pepper than I should have, but it was all the merrier. I..." See more didn't think it was going to be very good....until it all started to marry in the pot. YUUUUMMMMM. I even left out the bacon and shrimp, and it rocked!!!!! I used minute rice, boil in the bag, so I cooked the rice first, but not too much, and then poured it in the brew. That worked out really well. I'm always leary of cookin rice, I can screw that up fast! Uncle Ben's Boil in Bag is awesome."
"I liked this version better than the one I had in New Orleans. I had kielbasa on hand and was looking for a way to use it, so I thought that putting it in a jambalaya sounded good. I used Smart Bala..." See morence to saute the veggies instead of bacon... the bacon sounded too heavy, plus in the south, everything is cooked in butter, right? I used extra creole seasoning, an extra teaspoon or maybe a little more and served it with Crystal hot sauce. Excellent! My eight year old agrees."
