Jambalaya -Hungry Girl Recipe

Submitted by: SHELBSYD

Introduction

This is a spicy little meal that is so easy to make and tastes so good!! I don't know how I did it, but with my ingredients, I slimmed off 100 calories from the hungry girl recipe. I think the key is to find a low calorie chicken sausage. I used Trader Joe's at 100 calories a link! This is a spicy little meal that is so easy to make and tastes so good!!
