Homemade Jambalaya Mix!

I found this recipe on!

My husband loves Jambalaya. The mixes that come in a box can be a bit pricey, so why not make your own at a fraction of the cost. These would be great in a jar as a Christmas gift as well.


1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 tablespoon instant minced onion
1 tablespoon green pepper flakes
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

Mix all of these ingredients and store in an airtight container!

Recipe (put on a nice card and attach to mix for a homemade gift): Bring Jambalaya Mix, 3 cups water, and 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce to a boil in a Dutch oven. Stir in 1 cup chopped cooked chicken and 1 cup chopped cooked ham or smoked sausage. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove and discard bay leaf. Yield: about 8 cups.
