Jambalaya 2

Serves 4


  • 1/2 c. chopped onions
  • 2 medium peppers sliced
  • 1 c. rice
  • couple cloves garlic chopped
  • 19 oz. whole pack tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme, freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 c - 2 c. chicken stock
  • 1/2 lb. cooked ham diced
  • 1 lb.shrimp handpeeled if available
  • 1 tbl. parsley or chilantro

Fry onions in a bit of oil until translucent but not brown, add peppers, fry until wilted. Stir in rice and mix around until somewhat translucent. Add garlic, tomatoes, thyme, pepper. Pour in 1 1/2 c. chicken stock, bring to boil. Add ham and stir. Cover pot. After ten minutes add shrimp and cook until rice is cooked. If rice seems dry, add another 1/2 c. stock. You can cook on stove, turn down low, so it doesn’t burn. Or you can cook in over at 350. I think stove top is faster. When done sprinkle with parsley or chilantro. I usually don’t add salt, as the chicken stock is usually salty enough, but taste it, if not salty enough add salt!

We used chopped tomotoes instead of whole tomatoes and it turned out quite liquidy. I would add less chicken stock at the beginning and then add it later if it looks dry.
