20 Minute Jambalaya

20 minute Jambalaya- This is close to my exact recipe I used in college to make people offer me money because this recipe used to have the front of the dorms smelling like grandma’s kitchen. The difference in this recipe is I used fresh onions, bell pepper and celery but to save on time I use frozen vegetable.
