Ingredients
  

Jambalaya

  • 200 Grams bacon sliced
  • 2 pieces Hungarian sausages sliced
  • Spanish chorizo sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 pieces Chicken (use chicken thigh fillet), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup onion diced
  • 1 piece red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 cups long-grain rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 2 pieces bay leaf
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1 can canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Cup chicken stock (1 cup water plus 1 chicken bouillon cube)
  • 1/2 Cup beef stock (1/2 cup water plus 1/2 beef bouillon cube)
  • 250 Grams Shrimp peeled
  • 1/4 Cup green onion chopped

Instructions
 

  • Heat a large pot over high heat. Add bacon, sausages, chorizo, and butter. Cook, stirring often with a wooden spoon.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to the pot. Once chicken has browned, add onions. Cook until onions are golden brown and caramelized, about 5 minutes.
  • Lower heat. Add bell pepper, celery, and garlic; cook for another 3 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add rice, thyme, bay leaves, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Continue to cook and stir for another 3 minutes.
  • Increase heat to high. Add tomatoes, chicken stock, and beef stock to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • After 25 minutes, add shrimp and green onions. Cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, covered, or until rice is cooked.
  • Fluff rice with a fork. Divide among individual bowls, or serve it family-style by bringing the entire pot to the table.
