2 pounds of chopped cooked sausage of your choice
1.5 cups of rice (more if you like)
2 cans of beef consommé
1 can of rotel drained
1 can of black beans drained
1 can of corn drained
1 onion chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
Tony’s or your favorite Cajun spiced to your liking.

Put all in rice cooker and hit start. Will be done a ready to serve when it’s done.

I’ve never done with other meats or seafood, but I suppose that could be done.

I'm no jambalaya expert (as in I know very little about the dish but I assume it's one of those things where there can be quite a bit of variation) but I also like the addition of celery.  I also like to use fresh chopped tomatoes and jalapenos.

 

is it normal to add some herbs (thyme, oregano, bay leaves)?  I usually do that as well.

Celery is a tool of the devil. I often substitute celery salt instead.

What? I like celery salt in a lot of things, but it's ground seed and doesn't taste like the stalks at all.

Buy organic.  I hated celery until I bought organic celery.  For most veggies, it just doesn't matter flavor wise.  Celery is different.  It is bitter and nasty when it's not organic.  Organic celery has a peppery flavor that really enhances dishes.  I also chop it small so I don't notice the strings, and brown it.  It takes on a better flavor once it begins to brown.  It has gone from one of my most hated veggies to one that I use all the time.  

 

I also buy organic carrots and organic cabbage.  The carrots are much sweeter, and the cabbage actually tastes like cabbage.  The non-organic cabbage tastes like nothing, and although it is cheap in comparison, I'm just not into eating flavorless food.

I think it's reminiscent enough to work. I really don't dig celery.

Biggest issue I have with organic is shelf life. Organic vegetables seem to last maybe two days in the fridge where the non organic version might last 10.

I found that I liked organic carrots a lot more.  maybe I should give celery a try...

I don't think I've ever knowingly bought organic produce, but if this is true then WTF are they doing to 'regular' produce to make it last 5 times as long?

Where are you getting your produce at?  I get mine at Cosco and Meijer and the organic celery last at least a month before I have to throw it out.  Celery has a really long shelf life.  Organic carrots will sit in my fridge for up to 3 months.  Cauliflower is about 3-4 weeks.  Leeks last only 2-3 weeks, and the green onions a week.  The green onions are the worst, but they are with non-organic as well.  I knew a person who was pretty high up at an insurance company that dealt in restaurant liability insurance.  She wouldn't touch green onions because they are the worst veggie about getting people sick.  I buy organic whenever I can with those to try to reduce that risk.  I'll put up with the short shelf life.  The only organic thing that has disappointed me was the cilantro.  It didn't taste like anything.

I get most of my stuff from Sprouts (organic or not.) The worst offenders IME are greens.  Organic cabbage doesn't last more than 3 days.  Same with organic bagged spinach/salad greens... I will try to buy enough on Sunday for my wife to make salads all week and if I buy organic then by Thursday it's gone brown and wilty.   I've even noticed it with apples, which don't get refrigerated, the organic ones tend to end up mealy and soft more quickly.

 

Green Onions are also pretty bad, if I buy them on a Sunday I better use them by Tuesday if they're organic. It's true that non-organic ones aren't great either but I have seen a definite difference.  Carrots definitely last a long time, no issues there.  Cauliflower seems OK too.  In fact, aside from greens, it seems like most things that stay refrigerated are OK.  Things like apples, squash, potatoes, etc that are kept at room temperature/out on the counter seem to suffer the most.

I'm thinking people are attributing qualities to organic vs conventional when there are probably more likely explanations like plant breed, soil, post-harvest handling, etc. in many if not most cases.

Could be, but my experience has been consistent enough that there are certain things I just won't buy organic anymore.
