From the Big Easy

to the Big Freezzie! (It's 13 above right now!)

Got this Jambalaya mix from my Daughter Cait for X-mas. 

Looked easy, and since it's Tuesday it's all about easy.

Pretty easy prep.
Used a half lb. of boneless chicken breast and a half lb. of smoked sausage.

Sautee' the meat. Chcken first, sausage just for a few seconds.

Add a 4 cups of water-bring it to a boil, while at the same time adding the rice and spice mixture.
Looked like this to start.
Bring to a boil, let6 it simmer for 5 minutes , then turn off the burner, cover and let it sit for 30 mins.

Then it looked like this-

Can't really see the chicken, but it's there.

The review. 
I'd do this again and again.
Comfort food baby!
Next time add some chopped peppers, maybe some sweet corn and whatever else was available.
It lends itself to adding different things.

It was spicy- not at first bite, but had a great afterburn. 

Not too hot, but you know it was there.

So, bottomline- Tupper likes Jambalaya,just too bad we weren't; in the Big Easy to have the real deal!

Thanks Cait and Russ!
