Jambalaya Recipe

   I had a request for my Jambalaya recipe.  Please note, I am an Okie and do it the way we like it here.  If my way of doing it is an insult to any Cajuns, forgive me.  :-)

Mel's Jambalaya

                                    2 T. butter                                            smoked sausage
                                    3 T. paprika                                         1 T. cumin
                                    1/2 tsp. dehydrated onion                     1/2 tsp. pepper
                                    1 tsp. salt                                             1/2 tsp. garlic powder
                                    2 T. seasoning salt                                1 tsp. oregano
                                    1 tsp. thyme                                         1/2 c. diced tomatoes
                                    5 c. chicken broth                                 1/4 c. oil
                                    2 c. rice

     Melt butter in a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat.  Add oil and let it get hot.  For the smoked sausage, either use a one pound package and slice up or use the smoked sausage links (we used 8 of them).  Cook the sausage in the oil/butter for 5 minutes.  Add in the spices and cook for one minute.  Stir in tomatoes then the chicken broth and finally the rice.  Stir well and bring to a boil.  Stir more and bring back to a boil.  Turn to simmer and simmer covered for 5 minutes.
