I agree with the previous reviewer. This recipe deserves a better rating. I've been making SL's Jambalya for years and it is always excellent.
Ignore the nit pickers and purists. This recipe is delicious and definitely deserves a better rating than it’s got. One of our favorite Cajun/ creole recipes.
@other reviewer. Correct, Jambalaya IS Cajun, not creole. It absolutely DOES have tomatoes in it, but it should not have celery (unless you detest okra, like me) as well, andouie is awful, use smoked sausage instead. Never put the rice INTO your jambalaya (unless you want the leftovers to suck when you reheat them) instead eat it over your choice of rice. I would not make this recipe, mine is far better (perfected.)
Jambalaya is Cajun, not Creole, and it does not have tomatoes in it.
there were several discrepancies between the video and the recipe including:
1. the recipe calls for red pepper and the video shows green pepper
2. some of the ingredients in the recipe he never adds
3. you better cook the rice more than twenty minutes
4. the recipe calls for shredded chicken, but the video does not show him adding this either.
Amazing & simply easy to make. Truly delicious. Even for the newly initiated to Louisiana food dishes.
