    Good, but not great for jambalaya- felt like it was missing some flavor.

    Great flavor, but water portions are off. 3 cups of broth left the rice extremely mushy. I’d use maybe 2 cups to account for the tomatoes that are full of water.

    Delicious!!! I pretty much followed the recipe to a T. I added the chicken, shrimp, and Johnsonville Chorizo Sausage. It was perfectly seasoned with a little kick. I’m sure we’ll make it again! My husband is well travelled and thought I did a” bang up job “!

    It came out delicious! Made the rice on the side so that we could use fresh rice when we eat the leftovers it was a hit with the family!

    Mediocre dish. Followed exact recipe, except I cooked the rice separately. Fine for the night, but will not make again.

    It came out delicious! I grilled some shrimp and served it on top. I used Cajun style andouille sausage which added a little more kick. I’ll definitely be making this again.

    I made it is it supposed to be a bland dish? How would you recommend to make it a little more flavourful?

    Kids loved it. Next time may cook the rice before I make the recipe.

    It was great. I added one jalapeño to give a little hot spice. I would definitely make it again.

    This was my first time making jambalaya! Super yummy- I didn't use celery and added a serano pepper for spice. Will definitely be making this again!

    Delicious! Next time I’ll cook the rice separately so it won’t swell up in the leftovers

    Made following the recipe and it was delicious. The whole family requested it again. Making it a second time but adding more deer sausage just due to family’s preference for sausage.

    Great recipe . Did not have a lot of salt like other recipes which made the dish taste better instead of just tasting a lot of salt
