Jambalaya. . . When you hear the word Jambalaya, you can’t help but think of Louisiana and New Orleans; the home of Jambalaya. You think of shrimp, chicken, rice and mouth watering spices. It’s no wonder why Jambalaya has spread across the states, taking on different influences along the way. It made its way to California and into my family as a New Year's Eve tradition. Cooking Jambalaya on New Year's Eve is a tradition, my late uncle Joseph started years ago. As the family comes together to celebrate midnight, we cook and eat Jambalaya. He was sure to add his own Portuguese influence to the recipe by adding Portuguese linguica to the pot.  

If you love hot, spicy and meaty dishes, you love this Jambalaya recipe.


2 cups long grain rice

2 pre-cooked linguica links (1 lb) (turkey sausage links can be used instead)

3 cups x-large shrimp, peeled & cleaned

2 pre-cooked skinless chicken breasts, sliced

2 tbsp unsalted butter

½ cup diced red onions

1 cup diced bell peppers

1 cup diced celery

1 cup diced tomatoes

2 tbsp garlic, minced

3 tbsp green onion, finely sliced

1 tbsp Creole seasoning

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp black pepper

½ tbsp cumin

My Favorite Supplement!

This supplement has done wonders for me! I start drinking it half way through a work out and find myself able to go harder for longer. It has also taken my recovery to a new level! I used to be sore for a week after a tough workout, this product has shortened that to ONE day! Amazing product and tastes fantastic. My husband and I LOVE PNP Supplements and are switching over to using all of their products. Great company!
