    Default Jambalaya

    Is Jambalaya supposed to be thick like a casserole or thin like a
    soup?

    In between. More like a stew.

    Exactly in between!!! Made on the stove in a pot.

    A predominantly rice dish.

    If you've never made it before, try the Zatarain's box'd Jamabalaya and
    you'll be somewhere in the ballpark for taste and texture.

    I use hot Italian sausage.

    expected a wetter mixture. <shrug>

    Depending on batch size, if you don't add a tablespoon or two of oil
    it'll look that way. But depending on the meat or fish added, that
    depends.

    From Melba's "zero knowledge" point of view, don't put a grain of salt
    into what she thinks.

    Pictures! HA!!!

    You're "prize winning" ribbon jams are nothing special, compared to off the
    supermarket shelf stuff.

    I use Zatarain's boxed Jambalaya every now and then. I add sliced up
    smoked sausage, chunks of cooked chicken breast, and a little bit of ham
    pieces.

    Zatarain's is a little too spicy for me (I'm a wimp when it comes to hot
    spicy stuff), so I add a little more water and a half cup of minute rice
    to the mixture to kind of tame it down.

    Jambalaya is basically a rice dish with goodies in it. It's neither
    'wet' nor 'dry' it is quite moist without being runny.
    A good rice pilaf is not dry, jambalaya is a Cajun rice pilaf.

    Zatarains is not bad for a boxed mix. Mine is better.

    After 1991 Mardi Gras, where me and jambalaya first met, I cried up in
    PA until... the 1994 "Jambalaya Jam" music festival on the Delaware
    River. A jolly/friendly round Cajun man expert cook tended to a giant
    pot of jambalaya, here in Philadelphia of all places!!!

    I'd lose all care in music and eat my fill at his stand. He came back a
    couple years until the festival changed names to "River Blues." Totally
    pissed me off!!!

    Betsy,

    Myself, I couldn't tell if it was the Zatarains alone or the hot Italian
    sausage I added... but it WAS just about the spicy hot that I could
    stand!

    At least it guaranteed me a couple meals! ))

    Best,

    Really good, really well prepared Cajun food is an epiphany, isn't
    it? Once you've had the real thing, made with love and knowledge,
    everything else pales in comparison.

    That's the way I feel about the food of New Orleans and the Delta
    region. It's like heaven in your mouth and it feeds your
    soul.....real soul food.

    Yeah, it's never soupy, and I wouldn't say it's similiar to a stew
    either. It's more similar to what you'd find in a stuffed pepper...
