Jambalaya

 

By Stephy

 

Ingredients

 

1 14-16 oz pkg. Turkey Smoked Sausage, sliced thinly (optional:  use raw chicken cubes)

1 cup rice.  (Tastes best with rice blends or use nutritional brown rice)  

2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth

1 medium onion, chopped fine

1 bell pepper, any color, chopped fine. 

1-14 oz. can spicy diced tomatoes, with liquid.

2 large garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp. olive oil

Your choice hot sauce to taste. 

Cajun blend seasoning to taste.

 

Heat your oil on medium heat in a Dutch oven-type pot for a few minutes.* Add sausage, onion, garlic and bell pepper.  Sauté  for 5 minutes.  Stir constantly. Do NOT allow your garlic to turn brown, or it will taste bitter.

 

*If you're using raw chicken, put it in first and sauté  for a couple minutes before adding other ingredients.

 

Turn off heat.  Immediately add broth, tomatoes, Cajun seasoning and hot sauce. (Remember, with the hot sauce and Cajun seasoning.. you can always add, but can't take away!)  Stir, then add rice.

 

Bring mixture to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer for the length of time the package of rice recommends. 

 

Do not lift lid or stir.

 

After the cooking time is over, cool a bite and see if rice is done.  If not, continue simmering at 5 minute intervals.

 

If desired, add more Cajun seasoning and hot sauce.  Allow to cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
