"I have always loved Cajun foods but my wife doesn't like the 'kick.' In response to this, I made my traditional Jambalaya without the heat. Everyone loved this recipe and I hope you will to. Enjoy!"

Although not jambalaya fans, this recipe was pretty good for us. We skipped the green pepper & celery, but added some ground thyme, as well as increasing amounts of worcestershire & hot sauce. ...

my husband & i really enjoy this dish. i add extra chicken & sausage. i use lean turkey sausage so it's a little healthier. i also add shrimp.
