Comfort food - New Orleans style.  This authentic skillet Jambalaya may take a little time to prepare but it’s well worth the effort.  Swanson Broth and Creole seasoning provide perfectly rich and balanced flavor for this one skillet dinner that’s nothing short of delicious!

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the ham and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally (don't skip this step- the browning really adds to the flavor).  Remove the ham from the skillet.

Step 2

Reduce heat to medium.  Heat the remaining oil in the skillet.  Add the onion, celery and red pepper and cook for 3 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.  Add the rice and cook and stir for 30 seconds.

Step 3

Stir the broth and 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes.

Step 4

Sprinkle the shrimp with the remaining 3/4 teaspoon seasoning.  Stir the shrimp in the skillet.  Cover and cook for 3 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through.  Remove the skillet from the heat.  Stir in the ham.  Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.  Season to taste.  Sprinkle with the parsley.

    Took a little time - But worth the effort

    I was very happy with the results, even came back for seconds. I used an 8 ounce ham steak and two andouille sausages which gave the meal a slight "twang" without being overpowered.
