The kids and I had so much fun making a delicious Jambalaya recipe last night using Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice! Have you heard of Uncle Ben's Beginners? Their  ambition is to get kids to cook. They're even giving back to schools with a chance to win a cafeteria makeover in a Ben's Beginners contest (sign up for that at Uncle Ben's Beginners) plus tons of Wal-Mart gift cards (entry form below)! So get the family into the kitchen on Oct 15th for International Cook with Your Kids Day to show them how fun cooking together can be... and read on to find out how you can win!
Even in the busy back to school season cooking with the family can be fun and simple! The other night, I dropped by Wal Mart on the way home to get the ingredients for our meal. I chose to go with Uncle Ben's Red Beans & Rice and boy was that the right choice! Even my husband raved about it and he can be a bit picky when we're talking about food that's microwaved. The entire meal came together perfectly and everyone loved it--it tasted completed homemade, though it only took the kids and I about 10 minutes to prepare! I'm excited to share it with you and hope you try it!

Before you get to cookin', grab this discount for .75 off Ready Rice at Wal-Mart using Ibotta. Don't use Ibotta? I didn't either until last week and I've already received my first rebate via paypal from them for $21.75! It's an awesome app and super easy to use. I added it to my phone just for the purpose of using the coupon and then ended up saving a ton on other groceries I always buy. It's my new favorite thing!  You have got to try Ibotta and you'll get $10 free just for signing up and using your first coupon!
And now for the recipe!
Gather the ingredients. You'll need: 
  • Uncle Ben's Ready Rice: Red Beans & Rice
  • Small tomato or handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1/2 red onion
  • olive oil
  • Cajun Style Andouille Smoked Sausage 
Dice your veggies and slice half the sausage.
Heat oil in a large saute pan. Add onion, pepper, and tomato until onions are soft and brown.

While vegetables cook, heat rice in microwave according to package instructions.
Add garlic and sausage to vegetables and cook until sausage has browned.
Stir in rice (be careful--the package is hot! I used oven mitts) and mix everything together. Voila! A gourmet meal in 10 minutes... and your kids helped!
