Episode 23 - Ragin' Cajun!

Share it Please
aka Kristy and Dawson's awesome jambalaya.  This is really just our attempt to recreate the incredible Jambalaya from a little restaurant we went to a few weeks ago.  If you live anywhere near Stittsville you should go ---> Louisiannie's.  Order the Jambalaya. Or stay home and make our reasonable facsimile!

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 spicy pre-cooked sausage of your choice, andouille if you can find it, diced
4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
1 green pepper, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced
5 tomatoes, coarsely diced
2 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup beef or chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon dried thyme
1 small pinch of dried pepper flakes
a dash of hot sauce

Start by heating some oil in a large soup pot.  Add the sausage and let some of the fat render.  Add the chicken and brown with the sausage.  Next, add the onions, garlic and peppers.  Cook until they get nice and soft, about 5 minutes then add the tomatoes, tomato paste, the broth and all the spices.  Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how hungry you are and how long you can stand to wait.  Serve with corn bread!  Mmm cajun-y goodness!
