Our test kitchen took note of your reviews and we tested and revised this recipe to make it better than ever! We improved the method and increased the amount of rice so it soaks up all the delicious Swanson broth goodness. Make sure to use converted rice and add it during the last 30 minutes of cooking to achieve the perfect texture. These changes really made a difference in this New Orleans style classic, and the slow cooking allows the ingredients meld into a wonderful and delicious Jambalaya that is super easy to put together.
