"Great for easy camping dinner! As a Taste of Home volunteer food editor and mother of Boy Scout campers I appreciate easy to assemble meals that provide a hearty meal. We drain the tomatoes and use the juice to as the liquid called for in the recipe. Very flavorful. By simply adding a toss salad and fruit boys have a complete meal!"

"I left out the hot pepper sauce--and it was plenty hot! This doesn't taste as good as Jambalaya from scratch, but it's quicker and easier. Hubby loved it. Tasty, but be prepared for a spicy result!"

"I used the Johnsonville brand andouille, low sodium tomatoes and low sodium Zatarans dirty rice (couldn't find the low sodium jambalaya rice). Can't imagine using regular because it would have been way too salty. So easy, and so delicious !!!"

"I love this recipe and have made it several times. I prefer chicken over shrimp and use the reduced sodium Zataran's Jambalaya rice mix. After making it the first time, I quickly found out that in my house I have to make a double batch so there are always plenty of leftovers ... and I'm looking forward to making this for my office Christmas potluck this year ... This is a definite regular in my family's dinner rotation!"

"this was quick and delicious. My extra picky kids even ate it without complaint so it will definitely be made again. I followed the recipe exactly and for our tastes nothing needed to be changed at all. Had a bit of a bite that made it extra yummy to eat the leftovers when it was kicked up a notch more."

"The Creole seasoning and the hot sauce combined was just a little too much for me. Leftovers are even hotter! The jambalaya mix is plenty spicy alone. If I make this again I'll reduce the Creole seasoning and not use the hot sauce at all."

"Great but I think perhaps the creole seasoning was unnecessary on top of the per season jambalaya rice mix- far too much salt as the smoked sausage tends to already be salty in taste. Watch out when you add the ingredients and meats to the rice that its not burning at the bottom- never stir the bottom, If you have that expensive looking ceramic pot use it!! Anything else would burn easily and not really have the same homey presentation."
