Jumbalaya Seasoning Mix

We recently bought an enormous pack of sausages from Costco and quickly tired of them. I started slicing up cooked sausage and putting them in pasta, but that barely put a dent in them. I needed to find something new and different to put them in. So...

Jumbalaya Seasoning Mix

1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon pepper

What else you'll need

oil for frying
1 onion chopped
1 bell pepper chopped (I used red as it was on sale)
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 cup uncooked rice
4 cups water or chicken stock
2 cooked sliced sausages
1 cup cooked shrimp (we omitted this as we didn't have any)
hot sauce to taste

Saute the onion, celery and pepper in oil, then add in the tomato once they are tender.

Add the water, mix, rice, sausage, shrimp and as much hot sauce as you can handle (we could only handle a tiny bit!). Simmer until rice is tender.

The result was delicious!! The best part is that we used up even more sausages in a way that tasted totally different! Next time we will just order the small packages from the farm like we usually do.
