Sausage, shrimp and chicken… oh my!!! This Keto Jambalaya is my jam!  Seriously, it rivals any jambalaya I’ve had in New Orleans, but with only a fraction of the carbs.  If you are a Cajun cuisine aficionado, you’ll notice this recipe features the actual holy trinity of New Orleans cooking; onion, bell peppers, and celery.  (If you are anything like me this is just about the only way I’m going to purposely eat celery).


Now if anybody has a good keto beignet recipe let’s crank up the jazz and we can really laissez le bon temps rouler.

My favorite part about this recipe is most definitely the Kiolbassa Jalapeño Beef Sausage, it’s seriously the most flavorful and delicious sausage I’ve ever cooked with.  After tasting their product you’ll love it too, and they are so confident they guarantee that if it’s not the best sausage you’ve ever eaten they’ll give you your money back.


The most difficult part about this recipe is trying not to talk likeThe Waterboy or recount the many uses of shrimp just like Bubba.  (Pro Tip: Fella’s if you are making this meal for your significant other, there is a slim chance they may not love your Waterboy impression and find it more annoying than endearing - especially if you are as bad at impressions as I am.  I’m just speaking from personal experience here.)

This meal is more than just a keto-fied low carb version of the Cajun classic, it’s also a great source of vegetables. The cauliflower rice, which I know is either a love it or hate it type ingredient, really absorbs and takes on the flavor of the dish in way that you’ll be sure to love.

This recipe has become a staple on the weekly menu for my wife and I and I’m very excited to share this delicious recipe with you guys, especially because it features one of my favorite products ever, Kiolbassa Smoked Meats.
