Gulf Coast Jambalaya Rice Recipe

As the stew of the South, jambalaya is a definite staple. For ages, home cooks have been making their own tweaks on the traditional recipe. This rendition is my favorite. —Judy Batson, Tampa, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 11, 2014

My husband and I loved this recipe. Easy to throw everything in the crockpot and just let it cook. The only thing I did differently is cooked the rice separately, then put rice in a bowl and the jambalaya over the rice. Delicious.

MY REVIEW

My husband and I both really liked this recipe. Next time I might add a spicier sausage because we like more heat but it was very good as is. I agree that the rice did get a little soggy so I would add it later than the shrimp.

Delicious recipe, quick and easy to prepare. My son said at least 4 times, "this is so good!" and he doesn't usually like when I try new recipes. Because I am on Weight Watchers, I did use a

turkey polish sausage to reduce the fat content and used Minute Brown Rice instead of the white. The rice did seem a little soggy so I may use precooked traditional rice when I make it again and add it just before serving but it definitely has become a family favorite!

Mere words cannot express how good this is! Ms. Judy Batson of Tampa, Florida, I am in love with this recipe. I made it this evening, and both hubby and I went back for seconds. Thank you for sharing it!
