This one pot jambalaya is hearty, filling and makes a great meal to prep in large batches.
I used to think that making Jambalaya was a big process. I was actually afraid to do a dis-service to the cajun, creole flavors. Truth be told, we put our own twist on things when it comes to food and that is completely ok!
The ingredients in this one pot jambalaya are actually pretty simple and can be found anywhere. The transforming piece is the spices you use to bring it all together. I usually use whatever New Orleans type Cajun blend I can find in the store but lately I have been loving this Blackened Seasoning by Tiny Little Chef.
My favorite thing about this one pot jambalaya is that it can be made in large batches and be frozen for later use. Or, it can be used for lunches and dinners throughout the week.
