This recipe is so easy with Zatarain's jambalaya mix. It's got a little bit of spice but not to much for kids. Just add a little of your favorite hot sauce to kick it up a bit. If you want to cook it for a party or football game just put in in your crockpot on warm to keep it heated.
You add the shrimp at the end so it stays tender and doesn't become rubbery. You will love it and want to make it all year round not just at mardi gras!
