Easy Jambalaya

Submitted by: CARABY

Introduction

I live an hour from the Louisiana border, which apparently qualifies me to create my own version of the classic Cajun rice dish. This is just stupid easy to make and much less expensive than a mix. I imagine it would be good with shrimp added too. I live an hour from the Louisiana border, which apparently qualifies me to create my own version of the classic Cajun rice dish.

    1 tsp (approx) Blackened Seasoning
    1.5 tsp (approx) cajun seasoning
