Whether you’re celebrating Mardi Gras or just looking for a tasty dinner idea, our Jambalaya is easy to make, fun and delicious! During the Mardi Gras season, you can pick up one of our Jambalaya Packets, your favorites veggies and a protein item to make a quick and tasty Jambalaya. We recommend using our Andouille Sausage, but our Bourbon marinated Chicken or Shrimp are good picks too! If it’s not Mardi Gras, you can still make this recipe, even without our kits. You’ll just need Brown Rice, Cajun seasoning, stewed tomatoes and tomato juice to make this at home year round. Happy Mardi Gras!
