One Pot Sausage Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a one-pot wonder, spicy Cajun gift from heaven. And this Jambalaya is sooo easy and sooo good.

I love Cajun food, and dream of taking a food vacation to New Orleans. Hang out in the French Quarters, eat beignets while drinking coffee, and listing to jazz is the dream. One day I will go to no’lands, but for now, my New Orleans experience is confined to this one pot of Cajun delight. In about 45 min you too can have a taste of New Orleans.
