Green peppers in Cajun dishes inspired this recipe. For a healthy choice instead of andouille, substitute chicken sausage, cubed chicken or other protein.

  • 4 small green peppers
  • 3/4 Pounds fully cooked andouille sausage, chopped

Prepare jambalaya mix according to package directions. Meanwhile, cut peppers lengthwise in half; remove seeds.

In a large skillet, cook and stir sausage over medium-high heat until browned. Add jalapeno; cook 1 minute longer.
