Cajun recipes are packed with flavor and pair perfectly with our Original RightRice, which soaks up all those delicious seasonings and savory broth. This version of jambalaya replaces the sausage with kidney beans for added protein and nutritious veggies like butternut squash (but feel free to use whatever is in season). Topping it off with some avocado also brings freshness to this decadent dish.
