Jambalaya with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage

Jambalaya with Shrimp and Andouille Sausage
Randy Mayor
Yield

4 servings (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

Our top-rated jambalaya is a satisfying and hearty dinner that comes together in just a little over 30 minutes. We love the convenience of one-dish meals--which minimize both prep and cleanup time. Using both Andouille sausage and juicy pink shrimp, this jambalaya recipes is like a spicy surf-and-turf. To save time and money, buy frozen peeled shrimp and thaw in the refrigerator or under cold, running water. If you don’t have a Dutch oven, you can cook this dish in a large crock-pot.
