Thanks to the advice of the other raters, I reduced the amount of rice to 1 cup and the mustard (I used Grey Poupon) to 1/4 c. Very good! If you like your jambalaya a bit soupier, you'll need more tomatoes or broth. Perfect for cold Minnesota nights!
I also reduced the amount of Dijon mustard and I really liked this dish, it was really hearty.
I have made this several times and it never disappoints!
This is a great jambalaya recipe. I also will use less rice next time as it absorbed all the liquid and was not soupy enough. However the flavors are great. Tip: I used a creole mustard instead of regular old dijon and it was outstanding. Added so much flavor and didn't overpower the dish
It doesn't look like the picture, but it tastes great! My family loves it.
