Jambalaya

Don loves Cajun food and this recipe did not disappoint! I started this recipe after school one night and it really didn't take long to put together and cook. I had all the ingredients on hand. He loved it!

Jambalaya

6 slices bacon
4 links spicy chorizo
1/2 onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 small tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup plain tomato sauce
1 cup chicken broth or stock
1/2 lb shrimp (I used pre-cooked)
2 cups brown rice, cooked(Beth used white)

Chop the bacon into 1″ pieces and the chorizo into 1/2″ pieces. I like spicy chicken chorizo, but you can use pork as well
In a large sauce pan, add the bacon and sauté until just beginning to crisp. Add in the chorizo, onion, and pepper. Cook just a few minutes until the vegetables have softened.
Add in all of the spices, as well as the tomatoes, tomato sauce, and chicken broth
Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until thickened (about 45 minutes to an hour), stirring occasionally. Stir in the shrimp and rice and then cook for a few minutes longer before serving.
