Easy Mardi Gras Jambalaya
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!
Cook Rice from Jambalaya Packet and set aside.
Chop onion, celery and green pepper into medium size chunks, and mince the garlic.
Melt the butter in a large pan over medium high heat and add all of the vegetables and contents of the seasoning packet. Stir the vegetables until they are covered in the seasoning and cook until they are soft.
Once the vegetables are soft, stir in the stewed tomatoes, tomato juice and cooked rice. Add slices of the Andouille Sausage, or any other protein you desire. Note – if you are using chicken or shrimp, cook them before adding to the mixture. Stir the mixture until thoroughly combined.
Turn the heat down to low and let the mixture simmer for 25 minutes, until the meat is heated and entire mixture is warm. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching and encourage even heating.
Remove from heat and enjoy!
