Easy Jambalaya Recipe (& Tasty Tuesday Link Up!) via Mini Van Dreams #recipes #easyrecipes #tastytuesday


I had a major hankering for jambalaya this week.  Not the “add sausage to rice mix” but the real deal.  I threw this together and called it amazing.  You can beat how easy it is – throw everything in the crock pot and forget about it until 30 minutes before you serve it!

  5. No problem! I can’t wait to try your recipe! I just found a place where we can buy chorizo – its rough living in a small farming community, sometimes! LOL.
