How to make it

  • Prep vegetables and andouille sausage into bite size pieces, and set aside
  • In large pan melt butter, and add garlic, and chicken and pork, brown meat and remove from pan when fully cooked
  • once meat is removed add all vegetables, ham and sausage and simmer them in remaining butter for a few minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Once butter is absorbed into veggies, add chicken broth and raise heat to not quite boiling point.
  • Cut meat into bite size portions and add back into mix
  • Add Cajun seasoning, bay leaves and chili powder. Season to taste.
  • After 1 hour, add remaing spices, and red beans and rice.Just add enough spices to whatever you think tastes good. Jambalaya is a very personal dish, so be creative. Reduce heat to low, stirring occassionally to keep from sticking to pan, and until thick enough for your desired consistency. Serve garnished with chopped Green Onions. I recommend a couple sauces with this. There is a sauce called Cajun Power Garlic Sauce that is out of this world. It's not hot, but adds a very distinctive taste to the Jambalaya. I also use a hot sauce called Cajun Sunshine. This one is not as hot as tobasco, but has a very unique taste. Good eating!!

    Welcome. I've never had or seen jambayala with red beans before. I do agree with you on the Tabasco. Louisiana Hot Sauce or Crystal brand imparts a better flavor profile. I have an authentic jambayala recipe that I have used in competitons in Louisiana, where I lived. It is posted as prize-winning jambayala. If you like Creole and Cajun I have posted several. The Grillades are great and the Chicken and Sausage Gumbo is my restaurant recipe. And they are authentic. Give'em a try.
