We live in AZ, never ate Jambalaya but wanted to. Tried this and we think it is spectacularly delicious! EXCEPT ~ 2 cups uncooked rice? I wondered but followed directions. The beautiful brothy dish was stiff and dry but great taste. For lunch next day , hubby added ckn broth to thin and was the ticket. Finished it today and again we enjoy this recipe very much ~ so much flavor. Hasn't anyone else had a problem with too much rice? Thank you for a great recipe. We live at 5,000 ft. does this make a difference?

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.
