Yummy Jambalaya Recipe

Ingredients you will need:
  • 4 cans stewed tomatoes

  • 1 (12 oz) can tomato sauce

  • 1 large can of tomato paste

  • 3 medium onions (chopped)

  • 2 finely chopped bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 8 cups cooked rice
  • 2 1/2 packages of sausage (chopped)

  • 1 pack of boneless chicken (chopped)

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 or 2 inch think ham (chopped)

Cooking Directions:

Combine tomato sauce, paste, and stewed tomatoes in a slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours. While the sauce is cooking you can brown your onions and green peppers in a separate pan. After the sauce is cooked you can add your sugar, green onions, and garlic.

In your pan with the browned onions you can go ahead and add your sausage, ham, and a bit of water just to help with the cooking of the meat.

In another pot (yes, I know we're dirtying lots of dishes here LOL) you can brown (you want this cooked) your chicken. After your done with your chicken, add it into your previous pan with the onions.

Now *whoosh* yes we are almost done! Your sauce in the slow cooker should be finished. Once it is you'll add your meat and onions mixture. You want to let that simmer for a while...after that, you can just add 8 cups of cooled cooked rice, right into your slow cooker and stir.


Note from the Chef:

I realize that this seems like a jumble of a recipe, BUT that's how most recipes are in my particular part of the world. Most are handed down from your granny to you while you're helping her cook.

My granny used to tell me to "add a pinch" of that...what's a pinch? Well her advice was to just add till it seemed right. So that's what I've always done. This recipe is actually a pretty simple way to make your jambalaya and I hope you'll try it!

If you have ANY questions, please feel free to ask!


  1. Sounds interesting except I don't like sausage but I might give it a try!

  2. Well you don't have to put the sausage if your not a fan of it. You can substitute more ham or if you can get shrimp, that can also be used instead. Hope that helps!
