Jambalaya

Jambalaya

Ingredients
1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp (fresh shrimp is best)
1 lb smoked sausage cut into 1/2inch slices
2 1/2 Cups Long grain white rice
1-15oz Can of tomato sauce
1-10 oz can of ROTEL Tomatoes, chopped variety with green chilies (or two cups diced tomatoes, fresh or canned)
1 Can beef broth
1 Can French Onion Soup
1 Small green {or red} Bell pepper – chopped
2 Stalks celery – chopped
2 Cloves garlic – minced
3 Whole bay leaves
4 Tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 Cup green onions – chopped
1/2 teaspoon Cajun Creole Seasoning
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 Cup melted butter
Vegetable Oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 350º

In a large heavy pot {the thicker the pot the better, it’ll distribute heat more evenly and won’t burn the ingredients on the bottom} brown the sausage on medium heat in a small amount of vegetable oil. Approx 8-10 minutes.

Once your sausage is brown add all ingredients into the pot except for the shrimp, the green onion, the parsley, the Cajun seasoning, and the Tabasco sauce – put those 5 items off to the side. Combine well. Place pot in oven and cook, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

After 45 minutes, remove pot and stir in shrimp and the remaining ingredients (4 chopped green onions, 4 tablespoons chopped parsley, 1/2 teaspoon Cajun Creole Seasoning & 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce)

Place pot back into the oven and continue to bake for an additional 30 minutes {or until all liquid has been absorbed into the rice.} Remove from oven and fluff gently with a serving fork. Dish out to your loved ones and enjoy!
