  • I loved this recipe. I used diced tomatoes because I had them in my pantry and also used cajun seasoning instead of cayenne pepper. I need to buy cayenne pepper to avoid the salt added to the food but I didnt use salt in the recipe to negate the salt in the cajun seasoning. - 3/7/11

  • Ok, I used pre-cooked brown basmati rice which was delish, but instead of adding chicken broth to the jambalaya, since the rice was cooked in it, we added about 1/2 cup of water instead. This recipe was YUMMY! - 1/20/09
