Jambalaya for Samantha Jane :)

We had Jambalaya last night for supper.. I have noticed that is has been a while since I last posted a recipe so here is goes

~Jambalaya

2 celery stalks, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper. chopped (you could use and combination of peppers.. Green would work really well also)
2c chicken broth
1c white rice (not minute rice)
4 spicy sausages of your choice, sliced
10-15 shrimps
1tbsp Cajun spice (I made my own.. 1/2tbsp cayenne pepper, 1/2tbsp paprika, 1/2tbsp oregano, 1/2tbsp black pepper and salt to your tasting.
2tbsp olive oil

~ In a large sauce heat up the olive oil, add the sliced sausages to the pan. Once they are brown add the veggies. One the onions are translucent add the Cajun spice. Mix together, then add the rice. Mix it around with the sausage and veggies for about 2 minutes. Just to toast the rice a little. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Once it has come to a boil leave on simmer for about 20 min. At the last 5-10 mins add the shrimp so it cooks just right. You could also add chicken breast to this recipe. I would have but there was none thaw. Enjoy
