I made this for lunch today & evidently didn't notice it called for the Zatarain's® Jambalaya Rice Mix when I made out my grocery list, so I had to improvise & make my own. I used 2 cups Minute rice & 2 cups of water & about 1 tsp. Cajun Seasoning instead. It was perfect. I used 13 med size shrimp instead of 1/2 cup. I also used the diced tomatoes with green chili's, so didn't need to add extra Creole Seasoning.
It also never said to add the 2 mixtures together at the end, but I did. I would make this over again. Thanks Johnsonville®.
I had high hopes for this recipe because it looked and smelled wonderful. Unfortunately, my family thought it was just ok. The recipe called for shrimp, but, in the recipe directions it said shrimp or chicken,so, I used chicken since I already had it in my freezer. I think our issue was the flavor of the rice with the diced tomatoes. It had too strong of a tomato flavor for us. I think if I had used the spicy tomatoes with chilies like another reviewer we might have liked it better. That being said - we thought the Johnsonville sausage had a really good flavor and I will definitely buy that again to use in a different recipe.
I'm not a rice girl, but my family is; I AM a Creole-Cajun-Anything-Blackened girl. I enjoyed this meal right along with them! Our grocery didn't carry the Johnsonville Andouille so we subbed in Italian and it worked just fine! We're a family of 7; we doubled the recipe and will have plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
Too much hot sauce! My husband loves spicy foods, but even he said the heat on this detracted from the flavors. And I'm not sure that the rice mix is necessary. The seasonings add enough flavor that I'd rather use plain white rice next time and skip the additives from a boxed rice. That would help with the sodium content too. A few tweaks, and I think this would be pretty tasty.
Wow! I really enjoyed this, and it was super easy. I used a 14-oz package of Johnsonville's New Orleans-style andouille sausage and a 10-oz can of chicken. I did add a sauteed onion and green pepper because I like them in my jambalaya. Great recipe!
whole family loved it! I used the "mild" Zatarains Jambalaya Rice mix. Also used turkey sausage 1/2 sweet and 1/2 spicy and the last of the tomatoes from the garden, pureed (my kids hate pieces of tomato). nice flavor with some spice, but not too much.
as for the 1 star review that noted sodium....if you look at the nutrition info, it's ALL out of whack! just an error somewhere. it's not overly salty
Easy to make.
I liked this as the recipe stands, but I loved it when I substituted rotel for the diced tomatoes.
