Easy Homemade Jambalaya Recipe

Spencer and I love Jambalaya! And don’t get me wrong, the box that you buy at the store is delicious, but let’s face it. It’s always better (and healthier) to make it yourself! So tonight it was Jambalaya night at our house! There are a good amount of ingredients, but this is seriously a super easy recipe to follow! Enjoy!


What you need:

  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 package of Cajun Andouille Sausage (or another flavor that you like)
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup Peppers, diced (I used a mixture of yellow, red, and green)
  • 1/2 cup Celery, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 4 drops of Hot Sauce
  • 2 cups White Rice, uncooked
  • 4 cups Chicken Stock

Step 1: Pour the olive oil in a large pot and brown the sausage (about 5 minutes).

Step 2: Add in the diced onion, peppers, and celery. Mix well. Add in the garlic powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt and pepper, and Italian seasoning. Let all these ingredients cook for about another 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft and the onions and celery are translucent.

Step 3: Add in the chicken stock, rice, and hot sauce and mix well. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat, cover, and let simmer until rice is cooked and absorbs all the liquid. This took 15 minutes for me.


This recipe turned out moderately spicy, feel free to kick up the heat or add less spices depending on your taste preferences!

Enjoy your homemade Jambalaya!
