Melt butter in heavy, large lidded skillet over high heat. Add vegetables and garlic and saute for 5 minutes. Add all of the other ingredients, mix well, and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 25 minutes or until the rice is done. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes before fluffing with fork and serving.
Use turkey sausage to reduce the fat. Use half the amount of Cajun seasoning if you're sensitive to spicy foods.

TwistedmamaGreat base for jambalaya! Added a few extra ingredients such as black beans and diced tomatoes w/green chilies. Next time I will double the recipe, because it was not enough for seconds and thirds for my family of four, which they were begging for. Thanks!3y ago
