This is NOT a traditional jambalaya recipe, but I had some ingredients to use and it was just so darn easy!

Simple Jambalaya Recipe
Recipe type: Cajun
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 4

Again, I want to give you a heads up that this is not a traditional jambalaya recipe, but it brought back some fun memories from our time in New Orleans. Spicy dish.
  • ½ of a (1 lb.) bag of sliced frozen mixed peppers
  • 1 red or white onion, sliced
  • 1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 (12 oz.) can of black beans, strained
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • ½ of a 1lb. Kielbasa (I used turkey and sliced it on a diagonal)
  • 1 boil in a bag portion of white rice (or 2 cups cooked rice)

  1. Prepare rice according to instructions.
  2. Preheat a pot to medium.
  3. Add the oil, salt, spices, peppers, onion, and stir.
  4. Preheat a grill pan and toss those kielbasa bites on top.
  5. Brown just enough to allow for some grill-marks.
  6. Add the beans and tomato sauce to the pepper mixture.
  7. Stir.
  8. Once the rice is ready, mix in with the veggie/bean mixture.
  9. Toss in the kielbasa.
  10. Stir and serve.

If you have a hungry husband like I do, this recipe is enough for two people.
