We loved this! I didn't use a whole can of hotdogs and only 1 can of FriChik, but it was really good! Next time I will probably use a little less cayenne. And leftovers are good combined with refried beans in a bean/rice burrito. Read More

I love this recipe and my family does too! Full disclosure: I have used the recipe twice now but not exactly as written either time. This is what I changed (my daughter is pescetarian): 14 oz. Tofurkey Italian Sausage instead of hot dogs; 1 lbs. raw peeled shrimp instead of vegetarian fried chicken; 1.5 cups wild rice blend instead of 1 cup brown rice; ground thyme instead of dried. Also the recipe calls for 2 tsp. cajun seasoning; I used 1 tsp of Tony Chacere's Cajun Seasoning which has a lot of salt and 1 tsp of creole spices with no salt added which gives it a little more kick. Also the first time I used dry rice which did not cook thoroughly on the top layer so the second time I partially cooked the rice first. Read More

Very tasty! I will make it again. I did change the cooking method. I pre cooked minute rice then added it to all the ingredients on the stove top. This allowed me to avoid heating up the kitchen with the oven. Read More

I mixed it up a bit by adding some black beans and halved grape tomatoes. I also cooked the rice hall the time prior to baking. Will make again and again. Read More

Please don't hate on me for not making it exactly as written my first time around. I did make it exactly as written except for all the chicken flavored vegetarian meat. I've been vegetarian for years and don't need meat substitutes that taste like chicken. I used beans instead. other than that, I made it exactly as written. I'm not at all afraid of heat in a recipe and I was kind of excited to see 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. However, it's so hot that I can't taste any of the other spices. The next time I make it, I'll either eliminate the cayenne entirely or add something like 1/4 teaspoon, just to see if I can bring out the cajun seasoning flavor. As mentioned above, I used beans for the protein and also a couple of vegetarian hamburger patties. Since we're so far off-road for traditional jambalaya, I won't hesitate to add more vegetables.....maybe some corn, broccoli, zucchini, or anything else. For me, it's a good starter recipe that will have to be adjusted to my palette. I also think that the rice was a little bit chewy. I was concerned about the ratio of rice to liquid. I'll add a little more broth next time. Read More

I loved it! I bought the spicy buffalo wings from Morning Star to give an extra kick and the diced tomatoes with the green chillies in them. Read More
