Introduction

Went to a Bayou Boogaloo and one of the vendors sold packaged roux mixes for gumbo and jambalaya - so thought we would try it out. I am going to have it over ronzoni super green sprial pasta but looks like it would go great over a bowl of rice or of grits Went to a Bayou Boogaloo and one of the vendors sold packaged roux mixes for gumbo and jambalaya - so thought we would try it out.

Ingredients

    16 oz Smoked sausage
    16 oz Smart Chicken Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh (by GODDESSELLIE07)
    1 serving 1 Med. Green Bell Pepper
    6 cup (8 fl oz) Water, tap
    12 tbsps Jambalaya Girl Gumbo Base Roux
    24 oz Shrimp, raw

Tips

Add the shrimp about 15 minutes before setting the table. If you add it too early it will overcook.


Directions

The box did not say to but I cut the thighs to bite size pieces and sliced the sausage on a bias. I also added diced green pepper.
So, brown meat(except shrimp) in a pot that will hold 6 oz of liquid and about 3.5lbs of meat. Add 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. In a separate container whisk the remaining 2 cups of water and the roux mix until mix is dissolved. Add the roux to the boiling pot, stir well and return to a boil. set heat to low and simmer to desired consistency. Now I cheated, after I got the roux and the meat mixed and returned to boiling I put it in my rice maker/crock pot, set it to SOUP and when I returned to a boil I took the crock pot temperature down to keep warm and went on with my house work. About 15 minutes before serving stir in the shrimp and take the temperature up to soup again. when it boils take it back to stay warm and serve.
