Just in time for Mardi Gras!

6 Feb

If you like Jambalaya and love those great flavors I recommend you try this. So many yummy ingredients here and lots of spice!  All low carb.  I don’t think you will miss the rice. It goes well with a crunchy green salad.  This recipe sent from a friend who found it online at http://www.allrecipes.comphoto (2)

Jambalaya   serves 4-6

1-tablespoon olive oil

1-tablespoon butter

1 large onion, diced

2 Andouille sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch half-moons (I found this in grocery store by Hillshire Farms products, any smoked sausage would do)

6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 (14 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

3 green bell peppers, seeded and diced

2 zucchinis, diced

2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning (available at grocery store)

1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste

1-cup chicken broth

1 pound chicken breast, cooked, cooled, and chopped

1 pound cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp


1.     Heat olive oil and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and Andouille sausage and cook and stir until the onion starts to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

2.     Mix in crushed tomatoes, green bell peppers, zucchinis, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, and chicken broth; bring mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook uncovered until the liquid cooks off and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes. Stir in chicken and shrimp and simmer until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
