I have used this recipe several times and it never disappoints. I like to use shrimp stock instead of water to make the recipe. Some chopped bell peppers do add to the dish also. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Was Delicious!!!!!! made it for a pot everyone loved it. I added more cayenne for extra spiciness. The rice was under done for me though. never been too successful with rice so I think next time cook the rice on the side to add later but one of my favorite recipes!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow that was too delicious, I thought about licking the plate. I was afraid it would be spicy and it wasn't. Only bad thing is that I'm on a diet and I can't stop eating it. You've done it again Paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe but I don't use dried spices. I used fresh chicken broth, peppers,tomatoes, onion, garlic, parsley, and thyme. If you are watching your carbs, use grated cauliflower instead of rice. It has the same shape and texture as rice and tastes wonderful with very few carbs/calories. I used chirozo, shrimp, and crawfish tails and a couple of diced jalapenos. Have also made it with chicken, monk fish and mussels. Also very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is little more than off the shelf 'crappola'. Paula is a great deep south cook, when she strays into other areas (Particularly the cuisine of Louisianna she is a disaster. do a search on Jambalya and find a recipe by real Cajun/Creole Chefs. You will immediately see the grossness in Paula's recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ya right; short grain or medium grain rice is traditional and this Cajun should know. Replaced all the preserved ingredients with fresh. It was wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not a bad recipe if you're working out of a pantry, but all of the preserved ingredients could be replaced by fresh with better results. I believe short grain rice (or broken long grain is more traditional with jambalaya. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is wonderful. I made a couple of changes, like I added bell pepper, fresh onion instead of dried minced onion and minced garlic. I also used beef broth instead of beef boullion and water and added a couple of drops of hot sauce. My husband said that Jambalya is one of his favorites and that this recipe just moved it to his favorite. Oh yeah, and since we are not real seafood fans, I left out the shrimp, we did not miss it at all. Thank you so much paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
ABSOLUTELY one of my personal favorite and now best dishes!! Love it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Food Network, Can you please convert this recipe to feed 40 people? Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this many times and it is delicious. Over a few years of using Paula's recipe, I made a couple changes that improve it without taking away from the essence of the dish, such as replacing onion flakes with fresh onion, boullion and water with homemade beef stock, and real thyme instead of dried. Before I made any of these changes it was already delicious and frequently requested by my husband! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was my first time making jambalaya. i have read so many different jambalaya recipes, some with and without tomatoes. i finally decided to try this recipe out and i saw the segment on tv and thought, why not. i used two 8 oz cans of tomato sauce and since i didn't have any beef bouillon cubes, i substituted it with an asian seasoning packet. my first bite...mmm...delicious. i can't wait until my guy gets home so he can try it also. i added cut up pieces of thighs and legs, which i sauted on the side with garlic salt before adding it to the pot. will add more cayenne pepper the next time as i like heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I recently moved to Australia and decided to try this recipe. So happy I could find all of the ingredients here, which isn't always the case. We did have to guess at the sausage as it is different here. I managed to find a chirizo sausage which was just perfect in this dish. Loved the simplicity of the recipe. Fortunately, we did cut the cayenne pepper in half. It was perfect for those of us who don't like too much heat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a lot of heat for my husband and me! Next time, I'd cut the cayenne in half. BUT that being said, it's a very quick, easy, tasty recipe. If you like heat, don't change a thing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dish last night it was so simple and yummy! However, I had more of the ingredients than what it called for so i doubled the recipe. In addition, I added some chorizo sausage that I cooked separately for extra flavor, and one of my cans of diced tomatoes had green chiles as well. Turned out with just the right amount of heat, not overbearing at all. Very good crowd pleaser! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this twice before and am making it tonight. Great tasting, easy family meal. One change I make is to add the rice at the end because it literally cooks away into little bits if added at the very beginning. I also use fresh onion instead of dried. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very simple. I make this at least once a month. Still adjusting the heat for my family. I haven't quite nailed that yet. A very hearty and tasty meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this jambalaya several times for various reasons. It is so easy and quick that I can make it after a long day and know it will always turn out good. I found out really quickly, however, that I had to double the recipe because everyone likes it so much. I never have to worry about it sitting around in the refrigerator! Sadly, I developed an allergy to shrimp, so I use a whole rotisserie chicken instead when I double the recipe, along with sausage. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this with long grain brown rice so I have to cook it a little longer. It's sooooo easy to make. Very flavorful. I didn't add anything else too it. It's my husband's new favorite meal item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this recipe as is and it was really enjoyable. There are lots of ways to change this recipe and make it your own. Best of all, you can mix up all the dry ingredients and keep on hand for a quick meal. I love the versitility of this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My goodness!! I made this for Valentines day for our family. Dang it was great. I made just a few changes. Fresh onions, chili powder instead of cayenne cause I didn't have anycayenne. Let everything but the meat cook for 4 1/2 hours. I did not cook the rice first. It was to die for. One guest told me it was better flavored than what she had had in New Orleans. Tasted like I slaved! I put the sausge in 1 hour before completion and the shrimp I added 5 minutes before I served. The mix was so hot it cooked the shrimp right up. I did use the coffee trick mentioned earlier in these reviews. You will love it!! Kathy item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula has done it again... very good. It does have a little kick to it which I loved!! But if your not into spicey food I would cut out the cayenne. I will definitly add this to our fall/winter menu. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I saw your show while at the dentist , All three of us were watching (dentist and her asst) ! I decided what a fantastic idea for dinner - I stopped on the way home and bought andouille sausage (at the Jewel!!) to complement the sausage and shrimp I already had at home - then I added a banana pepper, half of a red pepper and a slice from a green pepper. I switched the dried ingredients to fresh (cause I love the smell) and voila!! It's time foir dinner - gotta go, thanks Paula !! You made it look easy and tasty! - Val item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so easy to make. However I felt like it lacked taste. It was ok and I'm sure I'll make it again. My husband really enjoyed it. I just wish it had a bit more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this a few times and always with gr8 raves from guests. Where the reciepe calls for water, I use 1 1/2 C. water and 1 C. strong coffee. This is an old trick of the Cajuns and I always get lots of requests for my "secret". item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this dish last week VERY easy and extremely tasty. However, I didn't put as much cayenne pepper in it as call for. But it still was spicy enough for me and my husband. It made for some great leftovers also. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so easy. I made it one chilly Sunday afternoon and it was so good. I added a little more cayanne pepper because we like a lot of spice AND I used jalapeno sausage. It was PERFECT!

I have made this dish several times, once for company, and it is always awesome. It is my new go to jambalaya dish and I will never use a box mix again. I love that I can mix the rice mix up ahead of time so it is ready to go. The only change I make is I add a fresh onion and a bell pepper, whatever kind I have on hand and saute it up first in the pan before adding the rest of the ingredients. It could not be more simple and it is really yummy. The dash of hot sauce at the end is up to you, but this recipe is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for New Year's Eve 2009. I doubled the recipe and made it just as the recipe was written. I used Hillshire Farm Hot smoked sausage and just threw it in at the beginning with all the other ingredients. For a single recipe, I used a whole pound of shrimp and use 2 pounds when doubled of course. My family absolutely loved this dish and it was so, so easy. Great tip to prepare the dried ingredients before hand in a ziploc bag. This dish would be fantastic to make during the work week. The cayenne pepper makes all the difference in this recipe. It was superb!!! Never knew Jambalaya could be so easy:) item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe is excellent if you want a quick and easy version that does not compromise flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I decided to try fresh onion, parsley, thyme, and garlic since they were available to me. If I were to want to make the "mix" for future use, I would use the dried. I also replaced the water with chicken broth. A finicky spouse meant replacing the shrimp with chicken. However... none of these changes made a negative difference! The dish was VERY good and even the finicky spouse enjoyed it... two nights in a row! I would recommend it. Tweaking is up to you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a pretty straight forward recipe and come out yummy, especially when you want something a little different. I modified it a bit, instead of the dried onion, I used 1/2 of a red onion, instead on the garlic powder, I used 2 cloves of garlic. So I sauted the onion and garlic until slightly brown and then added the smoked sausage until brown an then the shrimp, until almost pink. I took the sausage and the shrimp out and set them aside until the rice was almost cooked and then mixed it back in. One other thing... when the rice was 3/4 of the way cooked, I stirred in about 1/4 cup of spiced rum. Yum! Will add this to the my recipe item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was one of the best dinners for a cold night I have ever made. A few things I tweaked: 1. Used chicken broth instead of water. 2. Used 4 cloves of fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. 3. Didn't add salt, but added some Tony Chacheres (spelling ?) instead to taste. 4. I added a whole bell pepper and sauteed that with the onion before I put in everything else. 5. On a healthy note, I used turkey kielbasa and it was just as delicious as a beef or pork sausage. This was so great!! And healthy!!! Everyone will love it!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was spicey and had some of my favorite ingredients (rice and tomatoes) but the flavor was just a bit flat to me. I don't think I really liked the time in it. Or maybe all the dry spices just didn't jive for me. Maybe the next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

On a positive note my boyfriend really liked it, so maybe its just me that didnt care for it. The rice didnt get as soft as it should of and the flavors were a bit weird for me...i dont know.

Although I am not a big fan of Creole cooking, I do like Jambalaya and was searching for something easy to cook on a Monday night. I just so happened to have frozen hot Italian sausage & a pound of shrimp in the freezer so that is how I stumbled into this receipe. Overall I say it makes for an easy meal especially if one has left over chicken (although I did not last night, but usually I do). I doubled the amount of sausage (feeding 2 hungry boys) and I also added chopped onion and garlic into the pot. I was trying to cut down on my kitchen mess so I cooked the sausage first, then removed sauted the onion & garlic (sliced the sausage while that was cooking) then proceeded to add the mixture, water, etc as the recipe calls for. Had I to do it all over again, I would have used another pan to cook the sausage & then sauteed the garlic & onions I was adding so that the rice was simmering while the sausage was cooking. This would have gotten the meal on the table on a Monday within 25 minutes instead of closer to 45 (as the sausage took me about 20 minutes to cook & I elected to do it all in one pan). item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was my first Paula Deen recipe and it was so easy and quick to make. I added extra sausage and shrimp and some bbq chicken along with two cloves of crushed garlic and two chopped green bell peppers. The whole family loved it and I would make this again in a heartbeat.....it easily made enough for six people as it is quite the hearty dish. I have lots of leftovers and I imagine it will be even better the second day! I loved how it was a one pot dish and was ready in exactly in 20 minutes, it tastes like it took all day to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I replaced the sausage with chicken to cut down on the calories.... my family LOVES this! Thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband travels a lot and gets a chance to experience many different foods. When he tasted this jambalaya, he simply said, "restaurant quality." I loved it and so did my two year old. I will definitely make this dish on many more occasions. I will probably try adding chicken, diced onion, garlic, and bell pepper (like someone suggested). But it is simply excellent just the way it is. Thank you Paula Deen! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this with zatarans yellow rice instead of plain long-grain, and I used a little bit of chicken broth instead of boulline. It was amazing! It had the right amount of heat and salinity. Perfect, thank you Paula Deen item not reviewed by moderator and published

Confession: I am not a fan of Paula Deen. Her style doesn't appeal to me at all--and when I have seen her show it seems that everything she makes is overdosed in butter. All that being said, I thought this was a fabulous dish. Like a lot of other folks I did tweak the recipe a little and it took no time at all (so I can just imagine how fast it would be to make if I had followed verbatim. It appears to be an amazingly flexible recipe. I used half a fresh onion, half a sweet red bell pepper, 2 cloves of garlic (all quickly softened in a pan with a tiny bit of butter before adding to other ingred), cilantro instead of parsley (because I had it and my family likes it), chix broth instead of beef (again personal pref) and used 3 sausages of Aiddel's cajun chorizzo, 1 llb of shrmip and half pound of scallop (husband really likes scallops). This came together so fast. Best of all, my family--including 2 boys, 10 and 14, loved it. This recipe is a winner. I plan to keep in my dinner rotation for a long time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was amazing. I've never cooked cajun before, but wanted to make it for my partner, who was drooling as Paula made it. This was so good, so flavorful, and so easy! I did add chicken and I also used brown rice. Since brown rice takes longer to cook, I cooked it separately and added it al dente. I had extra liquid so I cooked it longer to let it boil out. The end result? Delicious and healthy! Will make again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I didn't think this was over-the-top spicy and I am a bit sensitive to heat. I used turkey kielbasa and 1-1/2 cups of brown rice (which doubled cooking time, but healthier). I also added one chicken breast, cut up into chunks and sauteed it with 1/2 large Vidalia onion and 2 minced cloves of garlic in about a tablespoon of olive oil, before I added all the other ingredients (I omitted nothing). It was delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have dried onion so I sauted some onion and bell pepper first then followed the rest of the recipe and it was sooooo good. I loved it, and it was very easy to do. I did use frozen shrimp at the end and it worked out just fine. Thanks Paula...keep up the good recipes!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used this recipe and made it in the crock pot instead. Just put the sausage in add beef stock let cook!! Made the rice mixture minus the water(beef broth in with sausage already) and tossed in during the last 30 minutes. I also used some frozen shrimp and put them in at the same time as the rice.

Loved this recipe. The taste was great! I have made it numerous times, and each time I love it more than the last. The first couple of times I followed the recipe as stated on the website. I loved the taste, but I did not like the texture for leftovers. What I do now is cook the rice separate (of course, eliminating the water from the recipe) and spoon the tomato mixture over it. I've substituted kielbasa and I've even used frozen shrimp. DELICIOUS!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the BEST!!!! I have made Jambalaya before, and the process was much longer with many more items, but I just added green bell pepper, fresh onion, and used freshed tomatoes. It is so much easier and the taste was amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was good, but I added a few things to make it better. I added chicken (which my family raved about) and a few other things.

I have never had jambalaya before today but this recipe intrigued me....so off I went. I made a few minor substitutions to accomodate what I had. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes, dehydrated garlic instead of powder, beef base rather than boullion. 1 lb of smoked kielbasa and a whole pound of shrimp. This recipe is a keeper....quick, easy and delicious and could easily serve a small crowd! You can taste every layer of flavor with each bite...Paula, you are right on the mark with this one! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I did not try this recipe but am reviewing it from watching the video. Jambalayas cooked in South Louisiana have all of the liquid absorbed into the rice! Either there was too much liquid ingredients in this recipe or the rice did not cook long enough to properly absorb it. Putting the shrimp in (Tails on? Ugh!) right at the end of the cooking time only adds more liquid as it cooks out of the shrimp. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I started the Jambalaya by cooking one onion, two cloves of garlic, two bell peppers, and three celery stalks (all chopped) with canola oil for a few minutes and then added the other ingredients. In addition, I substituted 1 1/2 cups brown rice for the 1 cup white rice (healthier). My husband loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My husband loves this recipe. It is easy to make and you can determine how much seasoning you want to add for spicyness.

I have to admit I am a big fan of the Food Network. I am also a fan of Paula Deen and her downhome recipes. I recently saw her prepare this Jambalaya on one of her shows. It sounded quick, easy and looked great when it was completed. After experiencing one of those bone chilling days here in Indiana I decided this would be a great way to warm up. I used Italian Diced Tomatoes and instead of the shrimp I used a can of crab meat. Prep time was very minimal and I didn't have to stand over the pot and keep an eye on this meal. This is fast food from your kitchen that is nutritious and filling. It has been added to my recipe box! item not reviewed by moderator and published
