Easy healthy low sodium Jambalaya recipe

Easy Jambalaya Recipe with Mesa de Vida

Servings 4 -6 servings


  • 1 lb meat(s) of your choice I like to use a combination of diced chicken, sliced nitrate-free, sugar-free smoked sausage (such as Andouille), and shrimp. You can also use ground sausage or ground pork to make more of a Dirty Rice recipe
  • 1 jar Mesa de Vida Creole Cooking and Seasoning Sauce
  • 2 stalks celery thinly sliced
  • 15 oz diced canned tomatoes
  • 1 cup white rice rinsed and drained. *You can also substitute 3 cups of riced cauliflower to keep this low carb/Whole30/Paleo friendly.
  • 1-1/2 cups water or broth *Reduce to 1 cup if using cauliflower rice
  • Salt and hot sauce to taste Our cooking and seasoning sauces are low in sodium, so you control the level of salt. Our Creole sauce is pretty spicy, but if you like your food to be really spicy add additional hot sauce to your liking.


  • *Optional step if using uncooked diced chicken: Cook chicken until about half way cooked, then proceed with the rest of the recipe.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a large skillet or saucepan, stir to combine.
  • Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until all of the liquid has absorbed, and your rice is tender.
  • Dig in and enjoy!
