What’s for Dinner Wednesday :: Jumbalaya
It’s Sunday Supper in our house and Jumbalaya was on the menu.

Super easy, delicious, and enough for dinner the next night…heaven!


All ingredients in this recipe you probably have in your pantry.

Chicken broth, diced tomatoes, garlic, celery, red bell pepper, onion…and a little Tony’s…


Diced the veggies…you can use green bell pepper but we love red.

easy simple jumbalaya

Toss in a hot pan with oil…

Saute 5 minutes until veggies are soft…

Rough chop beef smoked sausage…we used sausage from Chappell Hill, Texas…so good.

Add sausage, shrimp, uncooked rice, chicken broth, diced tomatoes with liquid and as much cajun seasoning you like. Since the kiddos were eating, I used 1 teaspoon.

Stir together, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook for 30-40 minutes….

Fast forward 30 minutes and you have the most delicious rice cooked perfectly…

And the perfect Sunday night supper. Enjoy!
