Reviews for Big Easy Jambalaya
"This was a really wonderful recipe, so simple so it would be great for anyone that is just learning to cook. It was very flavorful too but not overdone! I didn't have any chicken thighs so I just used cut up chicken breasts. This also makes a lot a whole crockpot full so it is wonderful for potlucks or big crowds."
"I made this recipe twice and both times had to add seasonings to it after it had cooled. Something didn't taste quite right and I think it was the andouille sausage that gave it an odd taste. I made it again today with some changes and it is SPECTACULAR.Used 2 cans of black-eyed peasDoubled the tomatoes as well, but used one can of stewed tomatoes and one can fire roasted.Used a smoked sausage ring instead of the kielbasaused chorizo sausage instead of andouille2 tbsp of worchestershiredoubled the parsley and thymeI liked the recipe without my modifications but thought I would like it better if I could make some changes, and it suited my taste buds much better this time. I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. Thank you for sharing this!"
"I am a college student who just bought a slow cooker. This is the first recipe that I have made in my slow cooker, and I never thought that any food I made would ever taste this good. I will be making this recipe many times in the future."
"Amazing!! I made this the other night for my book club and my friends are still talking about this recipe. Definitely will make this again. Give this recipe a try!"
"This is an easy meal for those who are on the go. Perfect dinner for those rainy nights."
