I made this for a summer party last year and the one guitarist from the band we had called himself a "Jambalaya Junkie" and he gets it everywhere he goes. After trying some he proclaimed it the BEST he ever had!! He asked for the recipe and said I could pay him in Jambalaya!! He wasn't the only one!! I made a quadruple batch for the party and it ended up being one of the most brutally hot days in Reading Pa.'s history, and there was NONE of this left!! needless to say when I announced the date of this years party I was inundated with requests to make this again..just ALOT more of it!! The only thing I didn't do was add File powder since I was unable to find it. I made it a 2nd time and cooked the rice seperate like people said to do...family liked it better with the rice cooked in the sauce, had a more incorporated taste, not like it was just stirred in. Would recommend following the directions, tastes the best that way!!!!
