My Jambalaya
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)

This is my jambalaya recipe. When my Grandpa makes it, he doesn't use butter, but cooks down really fatty bacon and sausage to get the grease out of it, and then discards the remaining chunks of grizzle before adding the onions, etc. You can use canned chicken and broth if you don't want to mess with the thighs. Really, jambalaya is supposed to be a cheap meal that stretches meat, so you can use whatever leftover meat that you want to in place of the sausage and thighs. 2 1/4 cups of rice is 1 entire small bag. Please adjust the hot sauce to your tastes. Serve with red beans or potato salad.
