  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage and onion in hot oil until the sausage and onion are browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Pour water, jambalaya mix, and diced tomatoes with green chile peppers into the pot; bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer until the water is mostly absorbed and the rice is tender, about 25 minutes.

Spicy to me, but my husband ate it up. I used half chicken breasts instead of all the sausage, and I added a half can of sweet peas for some color and to sneak in a veggie. Spicy enough you coul...

Awesome recipe

Spruced this up even more by using shallot, celery, bell pepper, and adding sausage and shrimp. I added peas and green onion, celery leaf just before finishing. Easy, semi-homemade, delish!

added shrimp, blackened cod, okra, green bell pepper, yellow, orange, red, sweet peppers, onion, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, in an 8 qt crock pot

I had the family sized package, so followed the liquid instructions for that, but did everything else the same. Very delicious and spicy...which is how we like it.

Its just me an my boyfriend so i made one box of the jambalaya rice. Sauteed onion smoked sausage and one chicken breast and then added the rice and the Rotel an had black beans on the sides awe...

Delicious! I added chicken and crawfish tails.

Excellent and fast way to turn this mix into passable "real" jambalaya. I added shrimp as some others indicated.

Almost a five star. Claudia and I both liked this. The recipe makes too much for the two of us.
