Captain Russell’s Jambalaya

A tour guide in New Orleans gave me this recipe. It’s so easy to prepare, and the deliciously authentic Cajun flavors make it one of my favorite recipes. —Donna Lamano, Olathe, Kansas

    Great flavor! I added 2 cups of broth since other reviewers stated it came out a little dry and I also had to bake it for 1 hr and 15 min. checking the rice and added more broth as needed. Will make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

    I absolutely love this recipe. Mine comes out drier than traditional jambalaya as well, but all that flavor has absorbed right into the rice. I wouldn't change a thing. God bless Captain Russell, whoever he may be.

    AMAZING! It was so easy to make and didn't take long to cook therefore something I could cook any night of the week. Only substitution was I used mild italian sausage instead of andouille and a dash of red pepper flakes instead of the hot sauce.

    I made this according to the recipe. It was very good. The whole family liked it. I did add some extra broth after the first 45 minutes and I would probably add even a bit more next time. I would also up the meat. Definitely do the whole pound of sausage and perhaps add some chicken. Definitely a do over!

    I made this just like the recipe with no substitutions. It is absolutely amazing. I have never had Jambalaya before but thought this was so good that I could almost picture myself eating in New Orleans.

    Super easy and super yummy. Not a big fan of shrimp so I substitute chicken instead. =)

    I never comment on these things, but I had to for this recipe. This was AMAZING! So easy to make and full of flavor! We like heat, so I added crushed red pepper flakes and extra hot sauce. Will definitely be making this again! Thank you so much!
