Smokin' New Year Jambalaya

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, peaceful, Cajun New Year.

2 lb beef sausage, cut 1/4 inch thick
1 lb diced boneless chicken
1 1/2 lg onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
5 cups water
2 1/2 tbs Cajun spice (salt, hot red pepper, garlic, onion, paprika and some other mystery ingredients so if you can buy it ready-made all the better)
1 tbs salt
3 bay leaves
6 oz tomato paste or ketchup
1 lb peeled shrimp
3 cups raw rice

Saute sausage, chicken, onions, bell pepper and garlic until sausage and chicken browned. Add water, Cajun spice, salt, bay leaves and tomato paste. Bring to boil with lid and add rice. Stir and lower heat, simmer and stir periodically until rice cooked. When the rice is about half done toss in the shrimp. Enjoy!

  1. Sorry to hear you were stuck at home on New Year's Eve. But that Jambalaya sounds like it will help. I just made my New Year's Gumbo (and froze 5 quarts!) -- there's nothing like spicy food to kick some butt (and colds) on cold winter days!
    Wishing you a speedy recovery; Prost Neujahr!
