Jambalaya is a family favorite to many, regardless of whether or not you have roots in New Orleans! We wanted to bring this quick and easy Jambalaya recipe to you, which cuts down the cook time but not the flavor we all know and love.
Normally Jambalaya takes close to an hour to make. Yikes! I don’t know about you, but I normally don’t have the time or energy for a recipe that takes longer than 30 minutes, otherwise, we risk a weeknight pizza delivery slip-up. Instead, I pulled out my trusty Instant Pot and whipped up this mouth-watering dish in about 20 minutes. If you like it quite spicy, feel free to up the Cajun seasoning and even add some diced jalapeños, but this recipe is flavorful enough for the whole family. No matter what you choose, this dish will transport you straight to the French Quarter.
