"My family loves a lot of flavor and spice in our food and jambalaya delivers. This is my version of a New Orleans jambalaya that's got a nice kick to it but not overly hot for those who's tongues can't handle it."

  1. Melt margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion, celery, and green pepper; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and rice; season with basil, garlic, pepper, hot sauce, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then turn heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is done, about 20 minutes.
  2. Once the rice has cooked, stir in chicken, sausage, and shrimp. Simmer for a few minutes until heated through. Remove bay leaf before serving.

I left out the shrimp but otherwise kept to the recipe. Delish!!!! Rice is W O N D E R F U L !

This was wonderful. I only had chicken for the meat and did not have celery or green pepper but still turned out great. I will definitely make this again and try will the other meat/veg.

Wow! I followed another reviewers rec and used Chorizo, except it's so fattening so I used the soy version, that added this great spice so I didn't need to use hot sauce. I also added celery wit...

Instead of using hot sauce, I use cayenne pepper. I also add a couple of bay leaves for an intense flavor. To add more heat, I used andouille sausage instead of the Italian sausage. Mmmmmm!
