Jambalaya, an Acadian specialty, is traditionally made in one pot using meats and vegetables. It is different from other south Louisiana dishes because the rice is not cooked separately, but is added raw to the broth to cook and absorb the flavors of the dish. If you like, you can add a pound of medium shrimp (peeled and deveined) about 3 minutes before adding the rice and andouille.
