This One Pot Jambalaya recipe was the first recipe I ever shared! I posted it in my Instagram highlights. The photography wasn’t the greatest, included no measurements, and it got maybe a hundred views. But I didn’t care, I just wanted to share my love for cooking, the recipes I’ve learned, and have a way to keep track of it all.

Now I have 50+ recipes in my Instagram highlights and working on moving them over to this website! I still have a lot to learn about cooking and sharing recipes, but nothing gets me more excited than when someone shares a photo of a recipe of mine that they’ve made!

Jambalaya is one of my favorite things to make and eat. I love that it only requires one pot which minimizes dishes and saves time for those busy weekdays. It’s hearty, full of shrimp, andouille sausage, and chicken. But most importantly, it doesn’t lack on flavor.

The Key Ingredients

I typically am on the team “use what you have” but I feel pretty strongly about a couple of items in this ingredient list. It’s super important to use a good andouille sausage because it helps flavor the dish. My favorite is from Zummo’s or Beaumont Boudin Co. If you live in Austin, Zummo’s can be found at Fiesta and Beaumont Boudin Co can be found at HEB.

The other key ingredient is Tony Chachere’s creole seasoning. It’s like an all-in-one Cajun/Creole seasoning salt. It’s easy and saves you time from making a blend from scratch. This recipe is always a hit when I make it so hope you enjoy it too!
