Tasty Tuesday! Cheat Jambalaya


I love jambalaya! The rice, the tomatoes, the peppers, the sausage, the shrimp and the old bay. I hate... chopping all the ingredients and then waiting all day. So...

My Cheat Jambalaya
  • Rice
  • 1 can of Ro-Tel
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • Tomato paste - to taste
  • Salt & pepper
  • Tabasco
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • shrimp, kielbasa and sausage
  • Several jars of salsa (my *all time* favorite - Mrs Renfro)

  1. For each jar of salsa - fill that empty jar with rice and then water (i.e. 2 jars if salsa = 2 jars full of rice followed by 2 jars of water)
  2. Bring all ingredients, except shrimp, kielbasa and sausage, to a boil and then simmer
  3. Add to all that: shrimp, kielbasa and sausage  (I do fry the kielbasa and sausage a little before adding it to the simmering pot for a little texture but the shrimp I don't even bother to thaw... into the pot it goes)

Thank you
