Becky's Jambalaya
105 mins (prep 45, cooking 60)
21 ingredients
8-10 servings
I found this recipe in The Best of The Best of Idaho Cookbook/Caldera Kitchens. This is different from any jambalaya I've ever tried because of the roux (which has a nice gravy texture) and the spicy rice, but it's comfort food at it's finest. Although a little labor intensive, it's well worth the end result. I used chicken, crab, and spicy smoked sausage, but use what you have on hand or what your tastebuds prefer. The original recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon file' (optional), but I left it out of the recipe because it wasn't recognized as a food when I tried posting it. I left out the MSG and file' when I made it and used fresh parsley.
