Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Jambalaya!

Here's a recipe that I've posted at a couple other boards, which don't have a high traffic volume, under another name - in case anyone has seen it before.

It is a combination of about 4 different recipes, which I tweaked around to make my own.

Jambalaya

1 lb. boneless chicken breasts, cubed
1 lb. hot sausage (I don't know what kind - just hot sausage from the butcher shop)
1 lb. shrimp (mine was already cooked and deveined which was all I had available to me in the desert)
2 yellow onions, finely chopped
4-6 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
5-6 celery stalks, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 bunch of green onions
Tony's Cajun Seasoning
Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp. thyme
2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. black pepper
2 cups rice
4 or 5 cups chicken broth

Put some olive oil in the bottom of a cast iron dutch oven, then brown the chicken. Season the chicken with Tony's Cajun seasoning until it looks like enough...I'd say I put around 2 tablespoons in it. When the chicken is about halfway browned, throw in the sausage. Cook until sausage is browned. Remove the meat from the pan and throw in the veggies, minus the parsley and green onions. Sautee the veggies until the onions are clear then add the meat and chicken broth. Discover your Dutch oven is too small and you need to transfer everything tho a bigger pan. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. Add thyme and cayenne pepper. Remember the sausage and cajun seasoning has pepper in it, too. When it is spiced to your liking, add the shrimp and simmer another 10 minutes to let the spices soak in and blend. Then add the rice and cook for 15 minutes. Stir, then turn the fire down low and cook another 15 minutes. After the rice is done, turn off the heat and fold in the parsley and green onions. Let stand covered for 10 minutes for the parsley and green onions to steam.

Serve with cold beer and french bread (unless you discover your fresh sourdough loaf that was warm when you bought it was put in the freezer without you noticing.)

There's enough liquid for the rice, but that is a lot. I know, from when I lived in south ippississiM, they used a lot of rice, because they like it and it expands dishes out and feeds more folks.

This recipe would be great with Andouille sausage.

And yes, you have to have the bigger pot on hand... Somehow I know this.

2 cups of rice will be good for about 6 people

I like Jambalaya.

It makes a big pot of food - I like a lot of leftovers to take to work for lunches.

Gumbo and jambalaya leftovers are good eats. On a hot day, I'd grab a bowl of either and eat it right out of the fridge cold.

You can put anything you want in it. Thats what it was originally. A way to use up "stuff".

Had some two nights ago.
Staple down here, in this neck of the woods.

Didn't realize how old the thread was until I saw the AKWarrior post

We went to a local restaurant not long ago and tried their jambalaya...it wasn't right to my taste, there is another one that makes a real good one but it's wayyy too hot. Best one I had was at Sanibel/Captiva island, a restaurant called The Bubble Room, it's famous and expensive so we don't go a lot.

Last year, on our trip to Pensacola, the best jambalaya I ate was actually on our way home when we spent the night in Austin, TX and I ordered it at a restaurant near the hotel.
