This is like a traditional jambalaya but without so much heat. Perfect for introducing people to Cajun cuisine.
Kielbasa is available at your local Polish deli. If you can't find kielbasa or Polish sausage, use any other type of sausage you wish.
Altered ingredient amounts. This was great! After getting everything cut up, it was really easy to put together, and it was so yummy! I made just a few changes. I added about one and a half cans of diced tomatoes. I also used half green onions and half white onions. And I added about a tablespoon of cajun seasoning. It turned out great. I'll definitely make this again! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. I have been using this recipe since I found it on allrecipes.com a couple of years ago. This is a wonderful recipe by itself or used as a base. In the numerous times I have made this, I have added tomato sauce, extra garlic, and prawn. My only suggestion, is if you have a tough time cooking the rice without making it sticky (a problem I always have), cook the rice separately and add it to the other simmered ingredients when it is done. Thanks for a great recipe! - 29 Sep 2008
