Leftovers Part The Third

Back to those T-day leftovers ~ this one is a Cooking Light recipe: Turkey Jambalaya. I'll post my modified version. It really is one of my favourite ways to use up leftovers.

Turkey Jambalaya

1 1/2 cups chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
black pepper
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
2 cups chicken (or turkey) broth
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cups shredded cooked turkey
6 ounces andouille sausage (or smoked sausage), chopped
2 tablespoons sliced green onions

1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic; sauté 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in bell peppers and next 5 ingredients; sauté 1 minute. Add rice; sauté 1 minute. Stir in broth and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Add turkey and sausage; cover and cook 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions.
